On my current cross country trip, I lost a baby moon hub camp.  I have looked on line and see 8 and3/4 and 9 and 1/4 sizes.  Does anyone know the size Riverside uses or the proper way to measure one ?

Jim...according to hubCapmike.com, "If you are replacing an existing set of baby moons, the easiest way to determine the size is to just take one baby moon hubcap off of the wheel, flip it over and measure the inside diameter of the cap. If you don't have existing moons, then use the instructions below." http://hubcapmike.com/baby-moon-measure.html

Thanks 5reeds.  That is great information and a wonderful site.  I will measure one of my remaining caps and move on.  Thanks again.

I'm kinda surprised the dealer can't supply a replacement from the Manufacturer.  I'm sure you tried that, so...in the event it happens to us (losing a moon cap) I'm bookmarking the website 5reeds supplied.  Oh, and then there's always 'Hubcap Lucy', if she's still alive, out on Highway 66 west of Las Vegas.  Over the years she managed to save, salvage 1000's of hubcaps lost off all kinds of vehicles!  Last I heard, she had a website.  http://www.deseretnews.com/article/931772/Car-need-hubcap-Lucy-has-200000.html

I have sent an e-mail to Riverside asking for the size they use for moons and where to purchase a replacement.  I am awaiting a reply, just sent it today.  I have been searing on line and got confused.  I measured one of the moons still on the trailer.  The hub has 3 notches or nubs they call them and the moon measured 9 3/16.  I have yet to find a 9 3/16 on the web.  Who would have thought replacing a moon could be so difficult.

Not I.  Riverside has got to have them available.  I'm sure you're not the only one to have lost one.  BTW, did you remove it once, prior, to remove the wheel or did it just pop off on it's own?  Maybe I'll super-glue mine on!  lol

Tod, midway on our trip I took them off to check the lugs.  I probably did not get one on tight enough.  I did talk to the office manager at Riverside today and she did not know the size or place to buy a new one.  So, no new information to pass on.  But, she was very nice to me and will send one to replace the one I lost.  I will have one shinny new one and three a little more dull.  Oh well, I am thankful for kindness and blessings.

AJ (for short) let me give you a tip a friend of mine found works great to shine up the older hubs: aluminum foil!  you wad up a bunch and with some soft soap, polish them.  I guess it works wonders.  Now, I have not tried this myself, so maybe try it on a small spot on the worst one first.  But he insists that it works to shine them like new and not scratch them.  Good luck!
