Anyone have this happen?

We took our first short trip of the season and when we got home and pulled in our driveway this happened!
We have a 2019 Jayco Eagle Ht 30.5 MLOK.
Thank God it didn’t happen on the interstate!

X2, I have heard of wheels coming off, from loose lug nuts and sheared off lug nuts. But it looks as the hub assembly just shattered. Wonder what the other side of the wheel looks like.

Wow, you were so lucky that was in your driveway. As Jagiven said, it looks like a complete hub failure. Did you happen to have just completed a bearing service or just replaced the tires?

The lug nuts are still attached to the hub. Which is on the backside of the rim. I wonder what it looks like. In the second image, it looks like I can see a bearing race, which indicates the casting blew apart.

Happy that you made it home, please don't be offended with my question,
I see its a 2019 have you had the wheel brgs checked or greased ,
Cant help but wonder if the TPS system might have helped with that, some will show tire/wheel temperature. anyway it was good the wheel did not come off while driving ...

Who inspected and packed the bearings last? If it was the people who put your new tires on somebody messed up.

Looks like a bearing failure from what I see. As Grumpy stated above, the bearings likely haven't been serviced in a while or were not serviced properly. I would check all the other wheels when you repair the failed hub. ~CA

The drum is still inside of the tire.

I'm gonna guess that those bearings were never repacked since it left the factory. Looks quite dry and is the axle nut rusty??
Defintely service them all.

Looks like the outer bearing failed and over heated to the point of melting the end of the spindle but I can't blow it up enough to get any detail. Once all of the rollers in the outer bearing disintegrated there was nothing left to hold the wheel/hub on. Steel can rust instantly when heated to the point of glowing for a long time and because of the extreme heat, it's hard to say if there was grease in the first place. You're lucky it didn't catch fire as well.

Shouldn't Have Failed

I don't quite get the folks making comments about bearing maintenance. If I bought a new trailer, I'd expect to service the bearings when I did a brake job. I have a 2001 F150 2WD with just under 200,000 miles and I have packed the bearings exactly twice in 21 years. Both times during a brake job. I also have a 2012 Rockwood Signature Ultralight that I bought in 2018. I checked the bearings after bringing it home, packed them since they were apart and haven't looked at them since.
Did I miss something about camper bearings needing yearly service?

You didn't mention a tpms system. Do you have one and if so didn't it show you it was heating up? Or do you not have one?

Yes you did! Trailers are supposed to have the bearings serviced annually. They are not like a car.

With a larger travel trailer, you should grease your trailer wheel bearings every 10,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first. If you have a smaller travel trailer, however, you'll need to grease your wheel bearings every 2,000 miles

That outer bearing was dry and overheated then failed. Looks like you will need a new axle. You better check the rest of them ASAP.

Start of every RV season we get bearings checked, repacked or replaced and have the brakes checked. We also carry two full sets of bearings, races, seals. Our bearings are kind of cheap and we've been averaging 10-12,000 miles per year. Bearing service at a qualified axel shop costs some, a tank and a half of gas, but it gives us reasonable confidence. And we check for hub heat at every stop either tactilely or with a remote thermometer.

Grumpy……what about Motorhomes?? I’ve never had to do that, but with 52000 on our motorhome, tire wear became an issue and we had to have the bearings repacked, struts and shocks replaced. Totally surprised by this. Service cente didn’t give us further direction on prevention!

You service them the same as a car or truck. Follow your owner's manual for what mileage to use.
