Thread: Pretrip-wheel bearings

Good time to check your trailer wheel bearings, before they let all their smoke out on the interstate. Physically lift your trailer up and spin the wheels and LISTEN. If it growls at you in anyway, take em apart and replace them. I just found a noisy bearing on mine, even though i have bearing buddys i still had some water intrusion. Ross

Another good idea is to have a whole other hub to take with you, incase of a problem, you can get a ready to go hub from most boating stores for @ 50-60 bucks, a hell of a lot easier to replace the hub, then to have to fool with replacing bearings on the side of the road.

We just purchased 2 extra hubs from Northern Tool for $40 and our trailer is new. Better to proactive than reactive.
