Archived Trailer Guys Questions
Boat Trailering Guys,
What type of lubricant do you guys recommend for the rollers & wobble assemblies on boat trailers? I have a tri-axle, (1994 vintage), which I am having to completely rebuild, including new urethane rollers & I have found that the spray lithium I was using has made an awful mess. Thanks for any help you can throw my way, Fred Grau

Use the same waterproof grease that you are using for the wheel bearings. When you have the roller apart, smear the grease on the roller shaft before reassembly. You should get a couple seasons out of the grease with normal usage of the trailer.
