Any of you folks use an oil bath style hub lubricant ? Any thoughts ?
Had the same hubs on the same trailer. They were flawless in the time I owned the boat. I liked them so much I switched the hubs on my car hauler to oil bath. My only complaint was the sight glass was mostly worthless and I ended up switching to a different cap.Can’t say enough good things about the “Reliable System” hubs that EZ Loaders come with
The Vortex hubs are very nice, they are what I had on the new trailer I had built for my last boat. Maintenance free.I had Bearing Buddies on a prior trailer. Was topping them off with grease the night before a long trip and could not get the pump line off - ended up popping out the little aluminum cover that holds the grease in the hub - NOT what you want to do before a long trip... A big part of my decision on my next trailer was that it came with non maintenance Vortex hubs which have been a dream - absolutely no maintenance... I will never not have them on any trailer that I own...
