One correction. The recall refers to 2019 TT, not 2018.

This recall applies to other manufacturers also. I'm assuming that they are Lippert axles. Either a new trainee assemblng the bearings on the axles or they ran out of rear races and had to keep the line running.

Yup!

I've been reading about this on other brand chat boards for a couple of weeks now.
