I have taken the wheels off my trailer and covered the hubs with plastic. The trailer sits outside. My son came home today and said I oughta poke a hole in the bottom of the plastic since moisture can accumulate. Does he have a point? D. Johnson, Collier, CO

MIKE: It can't hurt to do this. I assume that you are wintering your trailer with the wheels off. Condensation will occur when it is warm. With that said, I don't think you will experience enough condensation this winter to fill the bag and drown your hubs. GEORGE: Mike and I differ on this. So long as you have sealed bearings, you shouldn't be concerned about water getting inside. I'd bag the bag idea.
