Thank you for the responses. Yes, I was looking into the etrailer brake assemblies, so I’m glad to hear that was on your recommendation list. I measured the drums and it looks like the 10” x 2-1/4” drum brake assemblies are what I need and are only $109 on etrailer. Wheel bolt pattern measures 5 on 4.5 so looks like what came standard on the Shasta.
Good to know about the putty tape. I did order a roll of it with my recent VTS order so we should be set. I will refer to that guide when replacing the seals. Now I am on the hunt for the trim piece that is missing on the window...
Hey where is your Fleetwood? Still covorting with the aliens, I guess, as our friends here have previously posted.
Just happened on this thread. I noticed the rope glued along the interior wall edging. Usually, people do that to hide something. I wonder if this was repaired from the inside. The current location for the water tank under the dinette is a typical installation location for these trailers. My Westerner had it behind the streetside wheel, though.
I echo also about verifying if the putty tape underneath the j-rail was replaced. The mounting screws are hex heads for ease and speed. Doesn't mean anything wrong was done, using those to mount, but it does show maybe that the putty tape was replaced or longer screws were screwed in where the old ones were and the seller called it a day.
I am looking at the mounting for the wings. I think those were added later. Check behind to see how the mounting screws are sealed if possible. I see dimples in the wings from the screws and the rear most screw looks mighty, like too close to the radius. Just observations. Plenty of Shasta experts to comment on my inexperienced observations.
I am looking forward to seeing you pull the Fleetwood out off your land and also what you do with this one.

Hi Hammy, If you still need a retainer for your front window, I have one. I also would like to know the Hehr part number on your two front side windows. The number is stamped on the left hand exterior vertical mounting flange of the window and it identifies the size. Let me know if you still need the retainer. I also noticed that there were no seal savers on your axles or in your brake parts pile. Were they missing? Where are you located? Have a great day, Gary
