Glad you picked a bearing house, saved you a buck, some small needed business for him. Sides, they are always good for "how to" info.

I have been having fun repacking the bearings. Our TT is in storage a couple of blocks from our house so I have to go over there and remove the hub and bring it back to my house. That is where my tools and my bench are so I don't have to work on the ground or the tailgate of my truck. Easier to clean the bearings and hubs and related stuff at my house than the storage yard. I even went as far as to slowly pump the hubs with the same type of grease that I used on the bearings. Going to need to get another can of grease though since 1 tub filled both spindles and I have only 1 partial tub left that I was using to pack them. Had a bit of fun getting the new cotter pins in. Took 3 tries to get the first one in. Due to the zerk channel, the pin hole is not a straight shot. Had to insert pin in and then bend it some and push it in more. 2 wheels down and 2 more to go. Should be much easier now that I have done 2 wheels. First time repacking a trailer with EZ Lube hubs.
Looks like I might be doing some brake work soon too. The shoes have some thickness still but are getting there. Will have to definitely do them before next summer when we are hoping to take a 10 day to 2 week trip to southern Utah and Northern Arizona.
