manual says to lube every 6,000 miles or 6 months and the says the hubs and components should be disassembled yearly and inspected. Does anyone have a minimum of miles before it should be disassembled.
Hi. I have a 2009 13' Scamp
, and after the first year and 5-7000 miles, I phoned Scamp
to ask for information re: the bearings because I was "on the road" at the time. They said to just use a grease gun now, but that the NEXT year, I should get the wheels removed and the bearings repacked. So what Scamp advised was only half as often as what the "manual" says. I did that, and everything is running great. Possibly, everything would have been running great with only another shot with the grease gun, but why take the chance on a new trailer? (or an older one, for that matter!) Hope that helps. Richard
