    Ok, so I need to change my bearings and seals on my trailer. I have never done this and I am considering changing them from grease to oil bath.

    Has anyone done this? Is it anymore difficult than replacing old bearings and seals?

    Thanks.

    Stay away from oil bath. I have yet to see a reliable( no pun intended) one in the MARINE business.
    The company I work for only uses them only when a customer insists. If you want a sealed system the airtight is better.
