IIRC, on the RV-12, there is no large axle washer between the axle nut and the Matco main wheel bearing. The washer used to be shown on Van's early drawings, but it's need/use was subsequently deleted. At that time, I confirmed with Van's and Matco that no large washer is required. As always, check with Van's and Matco to verify.
