Boat Trailer Maintenance
If you’re a boat owner, you probably take good care of it. However, you may not give your trailer as much thought. Here are some tips for keeping your trailer as well as your boat in tip-top shape.
One essential element of trailer maintenance is to occasionally inspect the grease fittings on the hubs. Hubs and lights are submerged in water twice each time you go boating, after all. To check the grease fittings, remove the rubber cap if there is one, and try to rock the fitting back and forth. If it moves, you probably need more grease, which can be quickly and inexpensively added at any garage. It’s also smart, when hauling your boat, to stop periodically and give the wheel hubs a quick pat—but be careful, they may be hot. If they’re too hot to touch, you definitely need grease, and possibly a replacement.
