Caravan Wheel Bearings and Brake Servicing Gold Coast

At Universal Car care Automotive, servicing of all types of caravans is possible, and done with a great deal of expertise. They have a workshop in Mudgeeraba, where they offer different types of servicing.

They offer a wide range of services from “10-point safety check” to “Annual Service”, which is highly detailed. All these services are carried out by their skilled mechanics.

Servicing of the following components is very important, and done with expertise at Universal Car Care.

Essential Parts for a Caravan’s Movement:

Caravan Wheel Bearings:

Wheel bearings should be completely washed after every 12 months or 10,000 km. To do this, the technicians will remove the wheel bearings, wash them with a special solvent, clean the grease from the bearings and the hub, and then repack the bearings using a specialized machine.

In this process, Castor High Temperature Wheel Bearing Grease is used.

Manual repacking is not quite as efficient.

If the bearings have rust or odd points of discoloration or lining, it means the wheel bearings need to be replaced rather than repaired.

Your caravan might be otherwise fine but the wheel bearings may need to be serviced. This is because a large amount of load is placed on them. How much load is placed and how often the caravan is used will determine the life span of your caravan’s wheel bearings.

Caravan Brake Shoes servicing:

Brake shoes are damaged rather quickly and may start showing cracks along their lining. As a result, it may become difficult to control your brake settings. The cracks will worsen over time, ultimately resulting in failure of brakes.

This is why you should get your brake shoes replaced once they become cracked or wear and tear is more than 70%.

Caravan Electric Brake Magnets:

This magnet is very important, and also very hardy; replacement needs to be done generally after 40,000 km or so.

During servicing, the surface of the magnet is examined and wear and tear is noted. If the magnets are too damaged, they need to be replaced.

You should know that electric brake drums often need to be replaced at around the same time as the magnets themselves. Both of these need to be in perfect condition for your brakes to function properly. However, a lot of mechanics will replace your brake magnets without doing anything about the electric drums.

As a result, the magnet will start getting worn out. Sure, not replacing your drum will cut costs but it will result in brake magnets getting damaged way before they should. This premature damage means that you will have to replace the magnet earlier, resulting in further costs. Therefore you should replace the drums in time, to keep your brake magnets in perfect condition.

Before you begin touring with your caravan, it is not worth taking risks at any cost, particularly with your bearings and brakes.

There better ways of spending your holidays than being at a workshop.

Therefore get your caravan serviced as scheduled or before you head out for a long tour.
