How often should bearings be repacked

Hi friends,

I have around 5000 miles on my 2013 32bds. This will be my third summer, having bought the trailer in July 2102.

Should be axle bearings be repacked?

Thanks

Ensign.

I didn't do mine until I estimated I had maybe 10k on my 06 TT. Service guy said they were still in good shape but for $50 it was worth it before we set out for a long roadtrip. Not sure what they recommend but I check my boat trailer wheels every couple of years because they get submerged when you launch and retrailer the boat. Water will kill bearings.

I have mine repacked every couple of years. We tow about 10k a year.

I usually go 15 to 20k miles. Around 4 to 5 years. That is a good time for the brakes to be cleaned, adjusted. I ask myself the question " how often do the bearings on the car get repacked"?

The bearings on most vehicles are usually not carrying the max weight like most travel trailers.

While its unlikely, but if axles spend any time in water [flood, high water, towing thru stream] I would check them before long term storage or your next pull. Just pop the dust cover and check for moisture. Otherwise 2 years is a good schedule. Its not expensive. I use to do my own but as I got older I realized the cost is minimal and peace of mind knowing they were done right is worth it.
