How often should the wheel bearing be packed if trailer is only moved a couple times a year? Thanks

Well, I have to disagree, once you do them so you know they are greased well I would not worry about it for at least 3 yrs unless you plan on a really long trip, then I might go ahead and check them. My father in law's trailer sit outside for 5 years after it had been used for 2 trips and when I checked the bearings they looked like new, still plenty of grease. FYI, your conditions might vary.

I agree with vette racer but it depends on conditions. If the wheels don't get submerged in water, driven in very dusty conditions, or have a lot of miles put on them I wouldn't worry about them for a few years at least.
