wheel bearings

I just picked up a 2003 Wildwood 29BHSS. Good condition but i want to grease wheel bearings. How do i do it. There are plastic hubs that are so brittle they break when touched. Do i need to jack the trailer, remove tire/wheel thto get @ the grease fittings? Thanks tom

most hubs don't have "grease fittings", unless yours has Ultra-Lube hubs. you have to take the whole thing apart to get to the bearings.

sounds like you might want to have it done professionally if you don't have the U-L hubs.

I have a 2009 27RBEC. I pulled my hubs after the first year to service them. I noticed that there was a hole at the end of the spindle. Further investigation revealed that it was drilled and tapped. I had some grease zerts and screwed them in. Put a grease gun on the zert and gave it a couple of pumps. I noticed there was grease coming out of the center of the spindle. Long story short I picked up 4 ultra lube caps with the rubber grommets and I'm in business. Total cost to make mine the ultra lube $20.00.

Why not just put the ultra lube caps and zerts on it to start with?
