Thanks for so saying. I appreciate your comment !
Good job…give that man a cigar.
Yes, you are correct – and I knew that once upon a time… I think my “senior moments” may be exacerbated by being in the “YouTube Video Spotlight” 🙂 I’ have added an annotation to the video so I don;t perpetuate my error in subsequent viewers pronunciations. Thanks for the English lesson / reminder. Best wishes… and thanks for watching.
A pair of latex gloves makes that job a whole lot easier to clean up after. I use them when I repack my wheel bearings and it just makes it so easy. i even use them when I change the oil. They work wonders.
Good tip !. I’ll get a pair for the garage. Thanks for the comment !
Actually, I get a whole box of them (I’m talking about surgical gloves) . When I’m done I simply peel one glove off and place it in the palm of my other hand. Then I peel THAT glove off inside-out with the other one tucked neatly inside. NO MESS! As long as I don’t tear the gloves my hands need very minimal cleaning afterwards.
You are a very good teacher and very easy to follow and understand.
Keep up the Great work!!
Thank you for the kind words !
Great video! What do you use to clean the bearings?
I clean the bearings with paper towels. Roll the bearings back and forth on the paper towel and most all the old grease will come off on the towel.
Great informative video. I looked at your others and didn’t see one on changing your trailer (electric) brakes. Do you have one?
Jim ~~ Being a rookie at this, I watched most all the vids I could find that applied. Yours is without a doubt the most clear & informative. Many thanks for the pointers & instruction. Much appreciated Sir!
So far my RV trailer breaks are in good shape… but if/when I work on them, I will post a vid about it.
Mark, Thank you for so saying. Best wishes !
Thanks! I just grease my trailer bearing for the 1st time by myself with your tutorial.
Tanner, Glad ya got ‘er done. Best wishes !
When I was a kid the farmer I worked for had me clean the bearings with solvent to remove all the old grease and any particles that might be hiding in it. Then the bearings would get a soap bath, a real good rinse then blown dry with compressed air. Extreme maybe, but tractor bearings see much harsher environments than a utility/boat trailer.
Excellent comment ! I was just using a paper towel and some WD-40… but I like your method better. Thanks for taking the time to post your comment !
Thanks, great video.
thanks great video.
This is a very helpful video. I bought a janky jet-ski trailer that has rusty bearings. After referencing your tutorial, I am confident I’ll be able to remove them and replace them with new bearings. Much appreciated!
does the grease have to bewaterproof
Only if you are going to be submerging the bearings in water – such as with a boat trailer.
This is a great video Jim. Thanks.
