Dexter axle identification ?

I was told that my Dexter should have a identification stamped in the axle tube but I can't seem to find anything other than this sticker.
They do make a D52 axle which the sticker does have it on there,so I'm thinking that's what I have.
The axles are on a 2011 26 RLS
I am planning a trip up to Prince Edward Island Nova Scotia first week of August (1300 miles)so I want to make sure I repack the bearings and maybe get a spare set of bearings and races just in case. I bought the TT at the end of last year so I have no idea of the history of the bearings, it does have the easy lube set up but from what I'm reading sounds like I should not trust them.
So the question is does anybody have the part numbers for the bearings,races and seals and any other advice before the big trip ?
I imagine I can call Dexter and tell them what the sticker says, but I figured I would ask you guys first thanks.
Mike

Close to the sticker there's a number stamped in the axle with a axle weight rating. That's what Dexter uses for identification.

And also it is a stamped 9 digit number, about 18 inches inside the curb side of the axle on the rear side of the axle, underneath the words "DEXTER AXLE".

D52 is the axle type. You can find this axle referenced on the Dexter website along with some spec info.

I picked up two axle seals for under $10 at the local campers inn, not sure why didn't buy all four but I ended up getting two more off of Amazon for about the same price. When I was installing the last one the piece of wood I was using broke and bent the seal, so I had to go to the local Eastern bearing store down the street to get it done and one seal cost me $15. Was a little different it has metal all the way around instead of just on three sides but it was a Timken brand so it may be a better quality. The right front outer bearing look like it had gotten hot, it was a little discolored so I ordered a new complete set from easton marine to have with me for the trip to Canada
