Sorry, don?t know the part number of the cotter pins off hand.
I just have a storage bin full of them I have been pulling from for years.
However, that?s probably the correct one.

You can usually find one that will fit at Harbor Freight or Home Depot.

OK. I called MATCO this morning and they told me that the correct cotter pin for the RV12 main axle is: MSC.11X2COTTERPIN Z/P. Trouble is I would have to order 55 of these to meet MATCO?s minimum $10 order. Does anyone know of a different source for these?

"The part number for the cotter pin on the axle nut is the MSC.11x2COTTERPIN. It is on our website at:

http://www.matcomfg.com/COTTERPINZP-idv-3813-35.html

It is steel and is clear zinc plated.

The same size steel pin (7/32) from other sources would work fine.

The wheel on the RV-12 is the MHMHE51B. The axle assembly is the WHLAXLE3A. They are on our website at:

http://www.matcomfg.com/MHE51BESERIE...v-2354-30.html

http://www.matcomfg.com/AXLEASSEMBLYA3A-idv-2537-1.html

Both links provide additional details.

Thank you,

I found this information

FYI - the standard hardware store cotter pin size is 3/32, not 7/32 as noted above.
