Infrared Temperature Checking Questions
I've had several wheel bearing burnouts the last few years, even after repacking bearings within 12 months. I recently bought an infrared temperature gun so I could check and determine when the bearings are generating heat and likely to be going south. My wheels have covers over the hubs. Can I just check the temps of these covers? And how high of a temp should be a concern, or how much of a difference between temps on the same side of the trailer give you folks reason to jack it up and investigate?
My trailer is a 2010 Rockwood Signature Ultralite.
