I would say don't waste your money. I would just repack the bearing every year and be done with it. Your icehouse wheels are not getting dunked in the water every time like a boat trailer. I know my icehouse bearings are going on 5 years old and look brand new with just a simple repack each year. The only reason I can see doing it is if you are putting on thousands of miles each year towing it.

Hey ootdoors, thanks for the reply:) I bought my house last november and have not packed the bearings yet! I thought it would be a good idea to do this , but my buddy said that you have to tear the wheel and hub off to do it:( I have used the house 2 times to low from the cities. I am wondering if I will be ok for 1 more trip this thursday before i have to repack them? I would hate to think that they cant go longer that 2000 miles. I have new cables on it and have greased the pivot points.

I have a set for my ice castle, well worth it in my opinion. It is a cheap investment compared to the house itself and you can grease them up in a minute.

Tim, I guess I should have mentioned that it's personal preference. You will be good with that amount of mileage. I wouldn't worry about doing anything until after the season.

I'm one of those guys that doesn't mind popping the wheel off and inspecting the parts once a year. It's a little piece of mind for me to know everything is in tip top condition. It's a pretty cheap route to take to. Just a little grease and an hour or two out of a spring day. I do my boat bearings in the fall and wheelhouse in the spring.

Once again, it's really personal preference. I'm sure you could put them on and have no problems.

I would do it once a year no matter what. Like said peace of mind goes a long way. I wasn't going to do mine this year since I had only about 500 miles on it. I was doing some other stuff to it one day and I gave the wheel a spin and sounded like it was going to fall off. Glad I caught it when I did. One side had gotten water in it and rusted the bearing.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
