Wheel Bearing seal part

I plan on repacking my wheel bearing and was wondering what is the best way to identify what type/brand/size of wheel bearing seals I will need without having to take a wheel off first. I would like to have all the parts in hand prior to starting the process of repacking.
I have a 2013 26BH Jay flight. It is coming up on two years old this summer and has approx. 6000 miles on it.

I thank you in advance for any replies and assistance.

Thanks

You could ask the dealer or check the spec on your axles. Usually the seal number is right on the seal itself. Most auto parts store carry the several popular seals. Yours being fairly new should be no exception.

I wouldn't sweat having parts on hand unless you live out in the sticks.

BTW, if you pull the seals correctly there is no reason they can't be reused. A lot of bearing seal on cars were reused before the age of sealed bearings.

Assuming you have Dexter axles. I took all the info off of the axle tag and emailed the info to Dexter. They emailed me back all the part numbers for seals, brakes,etc.

I e-mailed Jayco asking which axle I had. They replied with a Jayco part number and a description. Using the description and searching the Dexter on-line catalog I was able to track down that info. Since I haven't actually torn down a hub yet, let me restate that I "think" I know the part numbers. Jayco's response was: Your unit has Dexter axles and the Jayco part number is 0195035 AXLE,EZ-LUBE 7000 LBS 86.00/68.50 8 LUG 1/2" STUD STRAIGHT OVERSLUNG WITHOUT SHOCK PLATE
12X2 ELECTRIC BRAKE NEVER ADJUST BRAKES NO LUG NUTS.

Out of the above, what I take to be the important stuff is: EZ-Lube, 7000#, 8 lug, 1/2" stud, 12x2 electric brake.

I'm not sure what "86.00/68.50" means but I guessing it's length and spring location specifications.

Follow up question.
I have got the part numbers I need from Jayco. I know if the bearing is pitted, corroded or worn to replace it and I have to replace the grease seal if damaged during the bearing removal. However, do I need to replace the wheel bearing cone along with the seal or just the seal? I see from Dexter axle you can purchase the seals separately but the cones only are sold along with new bearings.

I've always replaced the seal if I've removed it. I can never get them out without buggering them up.

Chances are if the bearing is damaged, the race "cone" will also be bad. I wouldn't take any chances. I would suggest pulling one wheel apart and get all the numbers. Your local NAPA parts store will be able to match them up. I was able to replace all of the wheel bearings and seals on my brother inlaws camper for just shy of $50, not including the greese I already had. He priced the same bearings and seals at the local RV dealership and was almost $150 for the same parts...

EZ lube requires no teardown to re-pack. If the seals are not leaking just follow the instructions on dexters website for EZ LUBE axles.

Tapered roller bearing cones and cups must be replaced as a set. A seal is only a few bucks so it's silly not to replace it at the same time.
