I never really got to test the life of my bearings - safety popped of, set brakes and being a newbie - burn up brakes, drums and bearings so go dealer to redo all and 6 months later had a shop, I trust, to redo bearing pack and seals - cheap piece of mind to me. Other commentary is very insightful and appreciated on all sides - that's what I like about this format on this forum. If you have common sense, you can pick your path from experienced members. Thank you ALL!

Hi

That is something else I do every year when I grease my bearings.

I have my wife spin the wheel I have off the ground and I pull the safety switch to make sure all wheels have braking.

Make sure and put the switch back in rite away your can burn up you brake magnets leaving it on.

I never thought of tell you all this. LOL

My brother-in-law just returned from F.R.O.G. rally and Dexter rep said re-pack bearings once a year. When asked about E-Z Lube he rolled his eyes and said re-pack bearings once a year and check brakes.

I agree, using those E-Z lube bearings is asking for trouble, although some swear by them if done correctly, I don't but some sure do. I re-pack my own bearings, not a vert trusting person. I won't say how often, but once a year IMO is a bit of an overkill, to each his own. If I told that Dexter rep how often, I would for sure get a eye roll.
