The guide details that most wheel bearings need replacing every 10,000 miles or every year, as wheels are in constant use. If bearings are not maintained correctly and replaced at the right intervals, then they can seize, causing wheels to lock up.
Wheel bearings locking up is the most common issue for trailer owners. In addition to this, the guide explains how readers who have a boat that is dropped in salt water should replace their bearings more regularly.
Repacking wheel bearings is a reliable way to avoid wheel bearing problems and can help prevent wheel bearing issues if carried out at 6 month intervals, or annually if the trailer is being used less frequently.
To repack wheel bearings, the guide states that new grease seals, cotter pins and wheel bearing grease is needed, in addition to a seal puller, degreaser solution, cleaning brush, washing tub, side cutters, slip-joint pliers, floor jack and jack stands.
The guide goes on to explain how once all the necessary parts are acquired, repacking wheel bearings can be done by following 6 simple steps. These include removing the outer bearing, removing the inner bearing, cleaning the bearings, repacking the bearings with new grease, installing new grease seal and finally reinstalling the hub.
