Blown Axle Seals

Our 2016 Eagle 321 RSTS is in for two warranty axle replacements both our Lipperts. Also all four axle seals were blown.LCI stepped up and covered the labor and seal replacement.All the brakes were covered with grease!LCI indicated they up graded the axle in late 2016 to correct that problem.Just wonder how many axles are out there with this what seems a serious defect? Thanks

We had two of six seals blow on our 2017 Seismic. They apparently over packed the grease. Seals and brakes were replaced under warranty.

Sounds like they over packed them because they didn't do it right to begin with. A lot of these fools just take the outer cap off, throw the gun on it and start ramming grease in there. You are supposed to get the wheels off the ground and spin them while pumping grease in there. AND don't use an air powered or battery-powered gun. Supposed to use a hand pump gun. The air and battery powered guns shoot the grease in there with a pretty good force. Hand pumping is less pressure.

I have a 2017 321RSTS that did the same thing. Did you contact Jayco first or Lippert?

So was this an issue with all years prior to 2016? Did the seals fail without added grease or due to filling the spindle through the grease nipple? When I tore mine down the first time the bearings were greased but there wouldn't be enough there to put much out past the seal.

You said "LCI indicated they up graded the axle in late 2016 to correct that problem" (also two warranty axle replacements). All I've heard about has been Seal, Bearing & Brake replacement. There isn't anything wrong with the axle itself is there?
