We decided that the mag wheels on our Trillium
needed their semi-anual polishing, so I removed them from the trailer and polished them up reeeeal purdy like. Close inspection of the Dunlop 6 ply tires
showed signs of sidewall cracking. No big deal to fix as I have a second pair on hand anyhow. A quick trip to my local tire dood (and $60 later ....bought 10 new chrome lug nutz too) and I am 'outta there' with new(er) tires
mounted/balanced and installed on my shiny mags. I got home and decided to flip the wheels over and polish the backsides, another CHORE. Works all (finally) done and mags have 2 coats of Carnuba polish over the Aluminum polish. I went to re-mount the wheels only to find that the wheel bearings on the drivers side are a little worn. Looks like next week will be bearing replacement Monday!!! Maintenance just never ends, LOL. Nice to have peace of mind motoring down the by-way(s) knowing that the wheels, tires
and bearings are all in Good Shape. Oh, I have also changed my trailer 'mount' to a 2" ball type from the 1 n 7/8 one ( local r/v shops are saying that the 1 n 7/8 mounts are no longer being made in the 'Y' style) and replaced the two safety chains. The new larger ball means getting 5 new (larger) balls including one four our 'bolor strowler', one for the 37 Plymouth, two for the Dakota P/U and one for the Trailers Goddess'
