A couple of wheel/axel maint. questions:
- what kind of jack do I need to lift up the wheel? There are only two places to jack up your trailer. Under the frame is the recommeded point, by all trailer manufacturers. This sometimes gets difficult without solid blocking to set the jack upon, then when you do get the trailer raised enough to service the wheel, the trailer is sitting at a severe angle. #2, Place jack directly under the spring mount on the axle. Any other position will/may bend the axle, creating poor tire wear.
- is it as easy as ... pump new grase in until the old grease comes out?
- grease how often? No! Even with EZ-lube bearings, the bearings must be removed every 6 months/12K miles for a visual inspection, then replaced using a new grease seal.
- check brakes too?? Yes! Check and adjust
- should I be making a Service appointment? If you have doubts yes. Watch how they do it and next time you will have the confidence to do it yourself.
