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.

Where can I buy quality bearings?

Parallel bearings kits are generally available from most of our stockists.

However, you may have trouble sourcing the dust cap because parallel dust caps are not a standard item.

Couplemate carries a large inventory of parallel bearing kits including dust caps. Orders are dispatched within 2 hours of purchase.

Trailer bearings rated towing capacity as follows

It is wise to remove the old bearing cups when replacing bearings. Cups and races are subject to wear and tear. If you witness carbon black in your grease or black grease, renew cups and races immediately.

Low-quality bearings have inferior coatings and reduced tolerance levels. These bearings wear quickly and are not suitable for long-haul, high-speed use.

Use high temperature bearing grease for use at high speeds.

dust cap dollyMy dust cap keeps falling off, what is happening?

Dust or grease caps are a compression fit. Frequently removing a dust causes lose of compression resulting in a loose-fitting dust cap.

Caps can also lose compression easily when heated and simply fall off.

Further, inspect the inside of the hub where the cap fits. It may be worn and require replacing.

Hub and dust cap sizes are as follows:

  • 45.2mm hub
  • 45.5mm cap

Hear From A Couplemate Expert On a Caravan Japanese Bearing Kit

Japanese caravan bearing kits have proved to be the finest bearing available for campers. Horse floats, boat trailers, cars, trains and planes. If it has got wheels, then it probably has Japanese bearings in it.

Chinese and Indian bearings are ok, you say?

No thanks. I’ve seen too many of these bearings fail without good reason. I am always on the lookout for quality caravan Japanese bearing kits.

I use a simple rule when buying bearings for my boat trailer: the word ‘Japan’ must appear on the bearing somewhere. Otherwise, it is not Japanese—and not a quality bearing.

Yes, I know this rule does not apply to all bearings. However, it helps me to identify the quality bearings I need for my trailers.
