Earlier I posted about my first shake down camping trip in my new to me popup and finding my barring really hot. So assumed worst case the barrings leaked. Well i had an RV shop look at the issue and although my barrings wernt the greatest the main issue was the drums were really rusted. The RV guy said, " the only time I've seen them this bad was on boat trailers.". Barrings were completely black and in dire need of cleaning and repacking. I knew they didn't do the greatest of maintenance on this trailer, but didn't realize it was this bad. when I bought the trailer, I checked for frame rust and soft or blackend spots on the underside which there were none. I didn't think to study behind the wheels as the hub's looked clean. What gets me is it supposedly passed VA state inspection. I wouldn't have driven 10 hours on this trailer had I known. Oh well lesson learned and $$ spent to start afresh and very fortunate nothing further than hot barrings to signify a problem.
