    Buddy bearing size...

    All,
    I'm looking to install BB's on my trailer(loadriteWVV-1000) I am using the 4.80x12C wheel/tire combo.What is the proper way to determine the size of the BB'S? The local boat place told me to remove the old ones, well since the trailer never had them to begin with- I was greeted with a blank stare.
    Thanks.
    Gig

    the sizes are pretty big in steps so just measure the inside of your hub after removing your dust cap or bring in your dust cap for comparison if u have one because they usually press fit inside just like the BB

    What up Z?
    Thanks for the reply. I think the actual bearing is fine ,So i wont have to change them(trailer is only 2years old- i think) But i know it does not have BB's They just make life so much easier when having to re grease. I never thought of actually bringing the cap in I'll remove it and put it in a ziploc.How often do you replace the actual bearing?- besides when it dont spin freely anymore any rule of thumb?
    Thanks AGAINfor the reply.

    I have never needed to replace a bearing! ( I have 4 trailers ) but the bearing buddy is a Big part of that as is annual disassembly /inspection and reseal / also carry a spare tire and best is to carry a spare loaded hub or at least bearing seals and a jack that fits the trailer !

    Z,
    Thanks for the Confidence.I'm going to driving down south(from NY) soon and i dont want any surprises. I already have 2 spares and 2 mounts to mount them(hafta watch tongue weight). I have been told to carry a loaded bearing or two just incase. I dont have seals this might be a good idea too.. I mean the trailer is just 2 years old- i have only had it since sept/ oct. I remember with my boat trailer i have BB'S never had a problem. but that is only in fresh water.I think my 4 way will take care of the nuts, and i hope i['ll be ok with my truck jack.
    Thanks again
