Black Eye

Went in to town yesterday and the road has a series of curves that generally prevent much passing. Ahead of me was a Class C RV followed by a semitruck. Speed limit is 55 but our pace was 40 to 45. After several places for the RV to move over the guy in the semi let loose on his diesel horn. Didn't phase the RV at all. Passed a few more places to turn out and the semi laid on his horn to no effect. Finally a place to pass and the driver looked like nothing wrong. This is always a topic of concern but I don't know how you can go along in La La Land with a big semi on your tail with horn blaring. It gives RV'ers a black eye and shows an extreme lack of common courtesy.

RE: Dexter Axles

My old trailer had regular (old fashioned)bearings and I hand packed them every few years. Had plenty of experience from bearings on cars. It looks like the EZ Lube is a different breed of cat. From what I have gleaned from the Internet is that the inner bearing doesn't come out like the old style but requires a tool to break it loose. I assume that removal of the hub is about like the old ones with a retainer and nut. Haven't seen any decent instructions on the job but I am a little hesitant to tackle it without knowing what I am doing. All you see is hit the Zerk with a grease gun and you are good to go. Question is how far????? Anybody have any suggestions or pointers?

Dexter Axles

Most newer trailers come with Dexter EasyLube Axles. These are supposed to simplify the requirement to lube the bearings every 12 months by applying grease to the Zerk fitting. However, most "experts" recommend removing the hub and pack the bearings manually. I did that on my previous trailer with standard hubs and fail to see any advantage to say there is an improvement in servicing.
