Parallel bearing kits to suit the following caravan manufacturers using solid beam axles
Parallel trailer bearings are an essential component of a trailer's axle system, helping to ensure smooth and safe operation. These bearings are designed to allow the wheel hub to rotate smoothly around the axle, while also supporting the weight of the trailer and its cargo.
One of the key benefits of parallel trailer bearings is that they are relatively easy to maintain, with regular greasing and inspection helping to keep them in good working order. However, proper installation is important to ensure they function as intended.
When properly maintained, parallel trailer bearings can provide reliable and trouble-free performance for many years, making them a crucial part of any trailer owner's toolkit.
What do I need to know about Marine Seals?
- Marine seals are a tight fit on the axle journal
- Some installers smear silicone on this journal to keep the rubber seal in the correct place.
- Marine seals rotate inside the stainless metal retaining ring
- Friction can create heat up to 100 degrees C
- You must grease this seal around the outside ring of a marine seal, with a liberal amount of grease. Insert the seal onto the axle, not into the hub
- A dry or greaseless marine seal causes excess heat.
