How to Determine the Right Replacement Bearings on a 1997 Tandem Axle Escort Boat Trailer


Hello I have a 2140 Robalo w/a boat on an escort 22/23 ft trailer. I burnt all the bearings up on one wheel this weekend and cannot find the model of the trailer. Is there any way to help me find out what size bearing etc the trailer may have? The boat weighs 4500 dry. Thanks


Expert Reply:

What you can do is pull the hub off of the good side of the trailer and get the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. It would be a good idea to replace all the bearings and seals anyway. With those bearing numbers I will be able to determine if we have a kit or if the parts need to be assembled separately.

Also, you will want to inspect the spindle on the problem side. If there is any scoring, gauging, or discoloration then I strongly recommend replacing the axle.
