2012 Swift 184 bh, loose wheel hub issue resolved.......recall?..

After 5 weeks at the dealer, the loose hub issue on our 184 bh has been resolved. Our problem began almost immediately upon receiving our new tt, see previous post dated around 3/2012. The wheels, not the lug nuts but the whole wheel assembly kept coming loose on our brand new tt, and the wheels would wobble from side to side. After ordering replacement parts from Jayco several times and each time the new parts not fitting, it was discovered that the inner wheel bearing assembly installed at the factory, and the replacement part number for that bearing, is not the correct bearing assembly for that axle. The service manager told us that Jayco has no idea how many units, if any other than ours, left the factory with this problem. He said we may be the only ones or we may be on the leading edge of a factory recall. At any rate they replaced the entire assembly on both sides of the axle from the drum out. The brakes or axle spindles were not affected. We will pick up our tt tomorrow and hopefully get some camping in asap. If you have a 2012 154 0r 184 I would suggest you have your wheels checked to be sure you don't have this issue. I just jacked up one side of the tt, and see if the wheel could be wobbled from side to side, any side to side movement is not ok.............happy camping!

Thanks bayleightucker. I recently had my brakes inspected as the manual says after the first 1,000 miles. I hope they would have caught this if it were happening at that time? Was the wobble noticeable to the eye when driving?

Glad they have your trailer fixed for you. That is a really scarey problem...an accident waiting to happen.

We actually had our wheel fall off while towing. My hope is that Jayco does issue a recall. I would not want what happened on our vacation to happen to anyone else. Our incident occurred on a secondary highway with wide shoulders. I can only imagine what would have happened on a busy 3 or 4 lane interstate. I'm also towing with a 2005 Tahoe. I do not thinks the outcome would have been as safe had I been towing with the Toyota 4Runner I originally purchased the trailer for or a minivan as is touted in the sales literature.

Has anyone forwarded their experiences to the NHTSB and to Jayco?
If not, then this will never be addressed or pursued as a safety issue.
