THOR #2107
Rear wheel oil seal

Had my new ACE 30.2 (2000 miles) in for alignment and the tech discovered that a rear wheel seal was leaking badly. Took it on in to a local Ford heavy truck shop for warranty repair.

Everyone might check their unit for a similar problem - easy to miss since it slings on the rim rather than leaks on the ground.

I've owned 3 F53's over the years and never had any problems. A little disappointing.

Rear Wheel Oil Seal

My local commercial Ford service shop fixed me up with a new seal kit and kept the RV only a couple of days. They were very pleasant and professional. The F53 is pretty bulletproof, so it is likely that I'm good to go. The 5 year drivetrain warranty gives some peace of mind!

We are really enjoying the 30.2.
