Freaken trailers

So, it’s 2:55 AM and I’m rolling out of the driveway 5 minutes ahead of schedule :-) headed for a long awaited trip up to Bahston,,,, cherp cherp cherp I hear with each rotation of the tires...

hit both wheels with the grease gun , drove around neighborhood came back with a red hot wheel... :-(

Strange, I pull the wheels each spring, re pack and install new seals...

I would normally check them before a long haul like this one but spent most the day in that freaken heat fixen a trailer light and an electrical problem on the boat.... and figured,,, oh, they’ll be ok

So now I’m out lookin for a new trailer AGAIN!

BOATS

Last March spent a week lookin and didn’t pull the trigger

a new trailer? so it's not the bearings then? are the spindles no good

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

this^... or your backing them in hot , then the rapid cool sucks in water, are your spindles sleeved, stainless seal surfaces and double lip seals go along way to curing bearing problems..

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Sorry, man. Trailers suck.

I got to replace the needle bearing in my winch. #^&#^&#^&#^& the bed at the ramp the other day.

Boy, was I popular that day.

Turns out it was a loose wheel, the rim was rusted so bad had to buy a new one... Iím thinking the rust caused the lug holes to over size and she just loosened up...
This trailer should have been scrapped years ago....

The crew wasnít too happy LOL


Niko, Iím in , Iíll txt...
