Yep, I agree grease is cheap. After "the incident" on labor day last year I now carry a spare hub and bearing assembly with me on every road trip. I lost my hub cap (bearing buddy) coming out of mineral bottom and all the dirt/gravel got in the hub assembly and ate it up. Didn't notice till I got back to Green River. By then the hub was destroyed. Let me tell you how many places are open in Green River on labor day that sell parts
...... ended up staying the night and driving to Moab in the morning, leaving the boat and trailer at the hotel. The Napa didn't have an exact fit, but I couldn't wait another day (damn work) so I bought the one they had, then drove back to Green River and put that one in. Thank goodness I brought my tools. It lasted to the Westwater exit, then that one died. Left my trailer and boat under the overpass and drove to Junction to get the correct parts, then back to fix the trailer. Soooo this spring installed 2 new hub/ bearing assemblies and always carry a spare. Cause nothing ever breaks down in your drive way right?
It was a good lesson to learn though.
