How Often Should Trailer Hubs be Regreased  


I have a brand new Kaufman triaxle trailer for car hauling. How often should I put grease on the bearings. Do I need to check everyday.


Expert Reply:

Standard tapered trailer wheel bearings are recommended to be re-packed with fresh bearing grease about every year or every 12,000 miles under normal use. In certain conditions this interval could be shorter, such as if you routinely tow the trailer under conditions of extreme heat or near its maximum load capacity.

The best grease around for trailer hubs is the "Red" grease like the Lubrimatic LMX Industrial Strength part # L11390. It's waterproof, heavy duty, and compatible with most other greases as well.
