Yes X 2. The seal should be a standard size. The sizes you listed, did you measure them with a caliper or a scale?

Take the bearing that goes on the shaft and the brake drum. They can measure them with a caliper. And the old seal if you still have it. If they do not have one, ask them to get the 3 decimal place ID/OD of the shaft/drum for you.

If you had exact 3 decimal size I can a part number on line from SKF or National if you come up dry.

Hope this helps

John

FYI. Ask for a double lip seal with the garter spring to use with grease and oil. It is a better seal than a single seal that they may also have

JohnB brings up a good point. Be sure that the seal has a double lip if you have grease fittings on the axle (which you probably have).

Probably not. I think the grease fittings just came around in 2005 with the new Lippert frames and Al-Ko axles. Before that, it was just the typical metal grease cap hiding the nut and cotter pin.

Unless of course someone added bearing buddies to it...

Ahh, I thought that the grease fitting axles were around before that. Live and learn.

The double seal is still far better than the single and cost pennies more. Just having a brake application is enough to justify the double seal.

But then again, the RV industry can gain dollars saving pennies. When I pulled the drums off the T310 when I bought it and one had a blown seal, grease all over the brake on a hand packed bearing, I looked and, What??? A single seal? You have to be kidding me... Nope, they actually did it.... ERRRRR

PA where the camper came from requires TT's to be inspected annually. Odds are high they pulled the drum, looked and put it back on nicking the single seal. The single seal is so fragile everything has to be perfect for it to work.

Here is that drum
