did you preload the bearing then remember to back off the nut a bit? It really sounds like the nuts are too tight...

"Finger Tight" sounds a bit loose to me.

Just after installing the cotter pin, while the tire is still off the ground, how does the wheel feel:
A. Spins freely?
B. Spins down in 4 or 5 seconds?
C. Stops as soon as you quit pushing?

Grab the opposite edges of the tire; Left and right, then top and bottom; Try and twitch the tire vs. the axle. Do you feel:
1. As if you are trying to flip the whole trailer over?
2. There might be a bit of give, but maybe it's the rubber of the tire?
3. A slight click or twitch?

If your answer is not B2, then your spindle nut tightening procedure needs to be re-worked.

Thanks for that advice. I jacked it back up and could feel a slight twitch, so I tightened the nut a little( I thought dexter video seemed strange only finger tight). Turned the controller all the way down and drove about 15 miles up the highway at 65. I feel I have b2 know. Hubs felt very warm, all feel the same. About the same when I got home maybe a little less warm. I feel better now.
