Checking the bearings at every rest stop and every fill up is just routine for us. DW always prepays for fuel at the register. For card security, we never pay at the pump. While she is doing that, I take a walk around the unit to check everything from bearings, lights, hitch, etc. We carry extra bearings, seals, grease, work clothes, and tools if we had to do a repair on the road. Fortunately, we haven't had to.
For the newbies, the hubs on the sun side of the TT will always be slightly warmer.
