Got the new wheel assemblies installed this past weekend. Tried to get them all on Saturday, but ran out of grease after the 3rd wheel. Called it a day and off to wally world for some more grease. Back on Sunday to do the last wheel. Went to adjust them and when I noticed my break away switch was not working.

Back out This coming weekend to do some more work it looks like. Going to also verify I am getting good voltage at each wheel.

A retired gentleman who used to own a RV dealership stopped by and gave me some pointers and recommendations.
1. Only use National seals. They are suppose to be the best.
2. At each wheel take a piece of wire and connect one side of the magnet and the other end of the wire to a good ground on the frame. That way, each wheel has its own good ground.

There were many others, but two of the top of my head.
