You hit the issue on the head Darral & yes the trucks wheel bearing failure is a fine example. Bearings fail!! if you do not take the bearings out and inspect them how do you know if there is an issue or not? Thus avoiding it when you lest want it to happen.
My current truck btw is not the first vehicle I have owned that has a wheel bearing failure either. Perhaps if it was just as fast and easy and economically viable to check a vehicles wheel bearing each year it would be worth doing as well if it meant avoiding being stranded out in no where land. :lout
I BTW have never been stranded in no mans land with the trailer as I know others have been, due to a trailer wheel bearing failure - I suspect strongly it is due to the fact I do inspect and repack every year regardless of whether it was a 10,000 mile year or a 1500 mile year.
Like all things in life we develop opinions that may differ from others based on our own real life experiences.
The one thing I know for sure is the longer I live life the more new to me experiences I have to learn from.
