    I am picking up a 17' Mako in Waukeegan, IL and trailering it back to southern California. Trailer is an 89 and not used much. How do I check the bearings to see if they are OK? Is it difficult to repack the bearings? Could I do it myself?

    check the bearing by trying to shake the wheel to see if there is any play in the hubs. Thats the easiest way to do it without taking it apart. Buy a grease gun and a tube of grease and bring it with you. then every 200-300 miles refill them until you can get it home and do a good check up of the trailer. Check to make sure the fenders are tight as whel i towed my 19 home the fender was loose and started rubbing the tire, I caught it though and it didnt do anything bad, but if left un noticed thats a big problem.

        What 400 HP Silverado left out is to jack the wheel off the ground to check it.

        Let's see if we can figure out what you have? A pix would be easier.

        Do you have a cap on the hub with a rubber plug in the middle?
