My trailer has brakes, and I mistakenly over filled my b/b's, result was grease sokes brakes. My fault yes, but it leads me to the question, do you really need them ? If your equipment is in good shape, I'm not sure how necessary they really are ?
I think about all those 60's n 70's cars running around w/o b/b's, on the same greased bearing set-up on most trailers. They seem to last for years n years w/o any troubles. I know they aren't dunked under water rutinely, but most saw lots of water over the years and cintinue to function. Just looking for opinions, thanks !!!
