    Single Trailer to hold 5 Gal Containers

    Is there some sort of bracket/cargo box designed to be mounted on a single trailer that will hold two 5 gallon containers? I have the Triton LT WCI series. Also, to check the bearing grease in the wheels, do you just pry off the aluminum cap? I see how to fill it and have the gun and grease, but how do you know if it needs any?

    well on the gas can holders i'm sure you can find something

    on the bearings, i have bearing buddies on my trailer and you just pull off the rubber cap and attach the grease gun and a few pumps and your good to go, they are not the total answer but they are ok

    the best way to do the bearings like you have is to pull the wheels off and take the hubs off and repack the bearings [both, inside and out] just to be sure you are good to go, just taking the cap off and putting grease in there will not work, if you are going on a long trip it's just insurance because you will be pissed off if you blow out a bearing on the side of the highway, i see it all the time

    thats my 0.02

    Bingo!!! Thanks Dave, that is what I was looking for. Is that rack designed to bolt onto the front part of a single trailer?

    Yes it will bolt onto any square tubing with the supplied square bent U bolts.

    It works really well and the prices on their jugs are low as well.

    Yup, that is exactly what I am trying to avoid. What are these bearing buddies you are talking about and where do you get them? Thanks..

    there is a few of them out there with different names

    i try and let the wheels/hubs cool off alittle before i launch them because after driving for a long time they get hot/warm and the cool water is not good for them, thats another reason you see some bearing failures

    found this on their site

    ***** The hubs on a trailer can heat up during long trips and when they are dipped into cool lake water, the sudden temperature change creates a vacuum inside the hub. This vacuum will draw any condensation, moisture, or impurities directly into the bearings, which can cause premature bearing failure *****

    on my hubs i have a grease zerk/fitting on the inside hub so i can grease that as well

    if you are mechanically inclined they are not that hard to install, if you are challenged get a buddy to help you or if you have a good mechanic ask him to do it for you, it doesn't take that long to do this job so i can't see it costing that much

    I got a nice set of "red eyes" bearing buddies from walmart for $12 that have an indicator on them that tells you how much grease is in them.
