I am getting ready to lube my sup r lube for the first time. I read in the manual that you are supposed to turn the wheel slowly when you apply the lube. Is this necessary? My boat is currently on my trailer and I was hoping to use sup r lube with the boat on the trailer. Also, how often do you use super lube?-I read that each wheel can take up to a whole tube of new grease in order to push out the old.
Any feedback would be appreciated,
Jim

I take a box with flaps and put it under the hub with one of the flaps under the hub resting again the wheel. The old grease falls into the box. I don't spin my wheels when I do a grease change. Normally, you will need two tubes of grease for a double axle trailer. I take a stick and clean out most of the grease in the cap. This will allow some room for the bearings to purge grease. Don't use your finger, the edge of the cap is very sharp!

I change my grease 2-3 times a year, always before a big trip.

I agree with everything said here. I've done both spinning and not and really don't think it makes a difference.
and DON'T USE YOUR FINGER! unless you wanna see red...

You do want to spin the wheel, the grease comes out of a hole in the spindle and you want the new grease to be spread all throughout the bearings...I do it once a year...don't trailer more than a few miles at most...and I just grease it until I see fresh grease come out the hole in the cap...This is a great system, I do spin and check my hubs for roughness and play each year but I have not had to take them apart (except for drum brake maintenance) for 6 seasons....

It's a hub system where new grease goes down the center then forcers old grease out the front. I have them on my Roadking trailer. DOes take alot of grease though.

:thumbsup: got cha. Another brand is "Posi Lube".
Be careful adding grease in very cold weather,
I've had it blow out rear grease seal.
