Tire/Bearing maintenance frequency, advice
So We have a long trip coming up in a few weeks, around 4600 miles towed over 3.5 weeks.
My 2016 29BHDS was new last July, and has including the tow from the factory around 3600 miles on it currently from last season and early this season.
Would you recommend tire rotation and having the bearings checked before the long trip, or is that overkill and we should be fine until after? I have heard dealers say they should be checked after 3000 miles, which seems excessive to me but I am far from an expert in this area. What is usually involved in inspecting the bearings, do you just get the wheel free and check for rough rotation or literally pull off the drum, expose the bearings, repack them, etc.
I would think more like 10000 would be more reasonable on bearings and 5000 or so on tires (which we will exceed with this trip).
