Recommended Hub/Drum Assembly for Salt Water Boat Trailer with 3500-lb Axle


The above part has the correct inner and outer bearing pn#s as well as the correct size for replacement on my Karavan trailer. Is there a galvanized equivalent as the trailer would see salt water or does it matter??? Thanks


Expert Reply:

Galvanized metal parts are definitely better if your application is salt water use. We do offer a galvanized hub/drum assembly in the 3500-lb axle rating and with the 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern you need. Hub/drum kit # 8-247-50UC3 includes the bearings (L68149 and L44649), races, grease seal, grease cap, and zinc-coated lug nuts. A review video is linked for you.
