U-haul Wheel Bearings Fix question

Has anyone ever tried installing a grease Zerk fitting on the sealed hub? I thought this might be a way to grease bearings from outside instead of buying a new hub.

Becky, can't answer your question... but I think you could use this info: Fiberglass RV - Document Center - U-Haul

can't be done, I bought two new hubs from uhaul, haven't replaced the ones on the trailer but carry one attached to the spare tire. If you can feel any play or roughness when spinning a wheel with the trailer jacked up I would replace the hub. To check them on big trucks required a special tool setup using special reflective tape and a sensor.

Bob is right. I'd just buy a spare hub and carry it. Available at any auto parts- ask for front hub for 93 to 2002 Camaro.

Do.it.now! Get that extra hub! They are on ebay.


We had a bad hub on our Uhaul VT. Happily, hubby saw the cock-eyed wheel (I was driving and did not feel anything.) when we stopped for lunch. Through a series of events outlined elsewhere here, we found an old Uhaul repair dealership who just happened to have two hubs that fit, so we could continue our vacation.

Do not be left out in Wyoming with a faulty hub. The guy in Cheyenne has no more camper hubs.
