Ever wonder why sometimes you see a boat on a trailer on the side of the highway with no truck to be found?  Probably because the wheel bearing failed and it either lost a week or it has a wheel bent on the side.   It's a common mistake that many boaters make - not checking their wheel bearings.

Recently, I noticed I was missing a dust cap off of one of my trailer wheels.  Not sure how it got loose, but that allowed dust and dirt to get it's way into the bearing. After inspection, I found that I need new bearings.

You can do this too by yourself.  It's not that difficult and I actually found a great video that shows you how to do it step by step.
