Hi Badger
I have just gone through this exercise before we head off on our trip to carry a spare set  I thought I could just go and get a set by telling them the model etc the guy at the Van spares said you have to check it out first for they use 3 different types of setups Ford, Holden combinations you need to pull the hub off to check the numbers stamped on the bearings or take the hub and bearings to a motor spares to get them matched up.

Unless jayco have changed things I think you will find they are slimline bearings. If you remove a wheel then take the hub cover, castellated nut and washer of the end of the axle it should reveal the number on the end of the bearing. If the number is L12749 that confirms it and the other bits will be:-
outer cup L12710
inner bearing L68149
inner cup L68110
Then just whack it back together.

Hi Badger and RebsWA

I had my wheel bearings serviced today on the Swan the bearing and cup sizes for the inner hub and outer hub were the same,
Bearing L 68149 Cup L 68110 Holden bearings the mechanic said and peace of mind now for me, I have made up spares 2x split pins, 4x sets of bearings, 2x Inner seals, a tub of wheel bearing grease all sealed and hope not to have to use them on the road.
They may still differ on your units pays to strip them all down to get the numbers the mechanic said.

Thanks for that info Old Croc. Seems you have a parallel slimline bearing set on your swan, very nice! Do you know if that bearing configuration is standard on the (bigger) campers or an optional upgrade? Maybe they have beefed the bearings up in recent times. I know my o/b eagle and a hawk I worked on a couple of years ago are running standard slimlines. Either way and you can still identify the bearing set as I posted above.

Hi all, i to have an OB Swan, and until now was under the impression that the axle size amongst other things is the determining factor, i have checked my axle and its 45mm in dia, and therefore would be Ford bearings ????, due to the larger size axle.

I say this only due to the info i have found and asked regarding trailer wheel bearings, i will watch the replys with interest, as i'm intending on replacing my bearings over the next few days, in readiness for the warmer weather. 

I also intend on using, CBC, or a Timkin set ??, and keeping my old ones as spares.

Any further info would be appreciated.

Regards Swanny  :laugh:

Had a surf around after reading this thread and you can get 45mm squ axles with std slimlines or parallel slimlines. Mines got the std, and Old Crock has the parallels so I reckon you need to have a look to be sure.

Hey all, got around to doing the wheel bearings on my Jayco Swanny OB today, first time on a camper trailer, done box trailers and dirt bikes heaps of times, but not anything with elec brakes.

I would have to say that i was pretty straight forward job, prob didnt have the absolute correct tools (drift to remove cones/races), but with a bit of imprivisation got there no dramas.

Only prob i had was when the magnet droped out when i removed the hub, not that it was a prob at the time, more so how i would have it stay in place, when puttng the hub back on, after a bit of thought, i come up with the rubber band trick to keep it in place, and figured it shouldnt interfer with the braking mech when applied, only rubber and wear away ????, seemed to work when i took it for spin.

Old bearings in good nic, but grease had gone off, so i will keep as spares for our trips. 

Used Timkin as replacements, all good.

Regards Swanny

Swanny, you didn't say if they were parallel or the standard bearing setup. Be interested to know.

Rebs, sorry mate, i'm not techo gifted, so when i took them up to CBC bearings here, they supplied me a set of tappered bearings exact same as was on it. The inner and outer bearings are of the same size.

The Stub was straight/parallel all the way from the axel i guess (sorry for my lack of terminology), not tappered like you see on some axels.

Hope this helps.

Regards Swanny

Thanks Swanny, you have parallel bearings (slimlines) just like old croc it seems. Interesting...

As far as I am aware all Jayco outback types run parallel bearings.

Earlier model small and mid size outbacks did not have parallels. Don't know about the larger flamingo and swan though.
Maybe jayco have upgraded to parallels in recent times

Just dragging up an old thread.

As said earlier not all bearings are the same on Jayco's. When I bought my Hawk I upgraded to the 2 tonne axle. This is a 50mm square axle with what Alko call a 2 tonne bearing set on their website. The bearings are a fair bit larger than slimlines but not parallel.

The latest 2 tonne bearing set are Alko part no 487001. The number on the bearing is HR30210. The Alko set were $70.00 per side. Rang general bearing joints with the numbers and price was the same

Yeah the 2 Tonne axle has the following bearing numbers: outer hi-cap 15123/245 and the inner set HC30201JR. My Outback Swan is also a 2012.  I purchased my spares from a local (Perth) trailer parts supplier called Martins Trailer Parts. $58 for a set including seal (one side) That's for quality Koyo bearings. The local Jayco stealer (yes I meant that) sells the alko set for over $90

Should be easy to identify the 2 tonne bearing setup as the axle nut is 38mm, much larger than usual. I was taken a little by surprise as the first time I went to pull the bearings out I didnt have anything big enough to take the nut off  :o even my 12in shifter didnt open up that far. Lucky I checked.
