Where's the TOO shoot at this year?Shaping up to be a fun year for us. Paint Creek in April, Leith Run in May, Dillion State Park in June, TOO Shoot in July, camping at my parent's river lot in August, the county fair and Salt Fork in September, Burr Oak and Strouds in October, with some random trips to AEP lands and our farm sprinkled in between. A solid first full year of ownership on the books!
TBDWhere's the TOO shoot at this year?
Mixed thoughts. 100% on boat trailers. On my campers I like to get hands on with them. Part of the experience for me to do it by hand. Pulling the tires and getting a good look at them all the way around at the same time. Checking brakes and backing plates. I enjoy it I guess is what I'm saying. Not just a pump or two of the grease gun. I like to make a few hours of it on a spring day. Really look the camper over after winter. Which I didn't do this year, lol. But I would imagine I would never do it with a bearing buddy system.Bearing Buddy thoughts?? Anyone install them on their campers?
The main purpose of bearing buddies is to pressurize the inside of the hub, thereby preventing water infiltration when submerged repeatedly. They’re great for boat trailers, but really don’t make much sense for campers or dry land trailers. The problem is they give folks a false sense of security. Everyone thinks it’s all good just because they pumped some grease into the bearing buddy. There’s no substitute for regular inspection of your hubs, especially on a camper. If this is already a routine for you the bearing buddies certainly won’t hurt anything... but they’ll be a waste of money IMO.Bearing Buddy thoughts?? Anyone install them on their campers?
