Worked like a charm. Gauge showed ?. About what I expected even with all the junk in the front compartment and the basement.
"?." seems about right to me.

Raised each of the TT's wheels with a Trailer Aid Plus (works great BTW), and pumped new Lucas Red N Tacky through the hubs. Did not disassemble them since we purchased it just last September, but did give each wheel a shake to check adjustment and they all seemed fine.

Cleaned the WD hitch rub points with a drill mounted wire brush, then sprayed them all with Satin Black Rustoleum then EZ-Slide Graphite Based Coating. Haven't used this before so we'll see how I like it, goal would be to reduce noise without grease.

Completely disassembled my "rvq" grill "ten years old now" and cleaned it for the upcoming season!
We love this little grill even though most dont.
I guess after grilling with it for ten years it's in pretty good shape!
