Trailer bearing lubrication can be one of the most over looked maintenance items on the road. Along with bearing adjustment, proper lubrication is essential to the proper function and reliability of your trailer axle. Bearings should be lubricated every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. It's even more important on boat trailers because of the extreme environment. At Rucker Trailer Works we charge $75.00 per axle including the seals and a safety check on items like brakes, lights and suspension. Don't end up stranded in the middle of nowhere or let a blown bearing ruin a perfect weekend.
We use only the best lubricants on the market as listed below.
