Seasonal Bearing Maintenance

This is more work I've done to my trailer, rather than a mod. But thought I would share the pic's and a link in case anyone wanted some info regarding wheel bearings, races or brake shoes. When I brokedown, inspected and rebuilt my hubs all the existing parts passed inspection with flying colors. I am going to keep a new set of bearings and seals in case I run into problems during our two trips this summer. I also plan on doing this every spring.

Here is an excellent link:
