Help! Wheel Bearing Hubs

In the past month or so I read an aritcle on wheel bearing hubs in one of the rv magazines.
Can any of you help and tell which magazine, and which month! It had an oil bath hub for trailers. Has any body used these?

No idea.
I'm a boater from way back so I just went to my local marine
dealer and bought 4 bearing buddy caps.
They fit perfectly and they are stainless steel and they will outlast
the rest of the trailer AND they don't look half bad on there either.

Cost about $17 a pair so that wasn't bad for some serious piece
of mind.

In a year or 2 when I pull the hubs to check brakes I will replace
the seals with bearing buddy double lip seals and then I know
they won't leak grease into the brake drums.
In the mean time I will cross my fingers and be sure to not
over grease them.
Just a couple shots at the beginning of the season.
