Quick Trailer Repair Question

4 posts in this topic

I need to replace the hub assembly on one side of my trailer. Hopefully I can get all the parts from NAPA.

My question is this though....is it any different to replace the hub assembly on a trailer with surge breaks as it is on a trailer without surge breaks? Does it matter if the trailer has breaks or not?

Thanks!

The hub assembly for disc or drum surge brakes is actually the entire drum or rotor. Not the same as a regular trailer with no brakes. The install is the same though, if that is what you are asking.

Why do you need to replace the whole assembly? You could just follow the bearing packing instructions that are stickied above, unless the hub is damaged. I carry a whole assembly in my boat, no brakes on trailer, for a quick roadside repair if need be.

The whole assembly is shot and I'll have to replace the axle as well. One side burnt up pretty bad when I got home from Canada (luckily I made it home).

That's what I was wondering though....if the install was the same.

Thanks!

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
