Fishing Season is Just Around the Corner, is Your Boat Trailer Ready?

Every year it's the same story, first to head for the lake and first to break down on the road.

Do you want them to remember being broke down along side the highway? The boat and trailer sitting at an unfamiliar angle, while you go digging through the brush to find that wheel and hub that headed off to parts unknown.

The whole day can disappear in the blink of an eye because now you've heat welded the bearing onto the spindle and you can't even get the rig home without a flat bed wrecker that can load the whole works on the truck and carry it for you.

Guaranteed you will see at least one example of some poor soul, stuck in this situation, at least once every year. Make sure that poor soul isn't you, take the time to prepare your boat trailer for the summer boating season before you take it out of your driveway.

When boats are unloaded into the water your trailer wheels go in with the boat. Water will seep into the hubs contaminating the grease. As part of yearly maintenance you must remove, clean, inspect and repack the wheel bearings. It's best to do this in the fall when the season is finished for the year as bearing left with water contaminated grease are likely to rust.

Rusting causes pitting in the surface of the rollers of the bearing, which in turn will cause heat when you get up to highway speeds. Heat can build up to the point that the bearing comes apart, the wheel comes off, and your dead alongside the road.

Your boat trailer tires are generally smaller in size then the tires on your car, the bearings are also quite small. This is convenient for unloading the boat as it is closer to the water level. It's a problem for wear as the smaller wheels turn faster, increasing the possibility of failure with little warning when there is a problem with the bearing.

Bearing Buddys can help as they allow you to keep grease under a small amount of pressure within the hub. They are not the end all, do all guarantee that you will have no problems. To be sure your bearings are in good condition it's required to disassemble the hub, clean out all old grease, and inspect the bearings for damage.

Don't forget the tires, when that boat trailer sits out in the sun for months at a time the tires are being destroyed by ultra violet rays. They can look perfectly good, only to blow out shortly after you get out on the highway. Dry rot has destroyed them while they sat.

If there is any indication of checking on the side walls, or splitting between the treads, don't take a chance. Trailer tires are comparatively inexpensive. If you have any doubts about them just replace them. This goes for the spare that's been clamped to the tongue for more then 5 years as well.

A prudent insurance plan would be to carry a replacement hub with a greased set of wheel bearings with you when trailering. It will cost you less then $50, and when you have even a slight indication of a problem you can change out the hub in 15-20 minutes and continue on your outing. A whole lot cheaper then having to spend serious money for a wrecker.

Tail lights are another area not to be ignored. Older trailers have light fixtures that aren't water tight. You can get by with unplugging the trailer lights from your tow vehicle before you enter the water to unload the boat. When you come back out, you'll need to wait until all the water has drained out of the light fixture before plugging them back in. To ignore this will mean the bulbs will burn out as soon as they are wet.

Today you can buy replacement light fixtures that use LED lights. Light Emitting Diode lights don't generate heat and are not in a bulb containing a vacuum. They will work under water with no fear of failure. This is the best option.

A second option would be to mount your light fixtures on pedestals that raise them above water level so they remain dry at all times.

Don't forget the hitch, lubricate it and check it for proper operation. Make sure you always use the proper size ball to fit your particular hitch. Using a 1-7/8" ball on a hitch designed for a 2" ball may result in your boat heading for the woods while your going down the highway. Always remember to attach the safety chains and if equipped the break away cable for the electric brakes.

Boating can be a safe and enjoyable activity, with a little preventative maintenance you can rest assured your outing will be a fun one.
