After suffering the corrosion issues with trailers before, a wee pearl of wisdom came my way from Ribcraft, when I picked my up boat.

Everybody might know about this but it was new to me, they spray the trailers once a year with waxoyl, (about 20, B&Q) 12 months down the line steam clean off, re-apply ready for another year...I'm all waxed up and it seems to work...

Tim before you try to undo the big centre nut, make sure you have a proper 1/2" breaker bar and a good quality 36mm socket. The cheapest place for a bar is Machine Mart in Northend about 10. The torque for these nuts is huge (rust won't help either). You will also need a 4 foot scafolding type pole to add to the end of the breaker bar unless you can find someone of Rogue Wave or Jonos physique who can just stand on the bar to release the nut, but with our build you will need an extra 4 feet to get the leverage

You're talking of spraying the whole trailer and not the bearings , Yes!

Yep the whole thing,be carefull when you use the spray (it's very slippery, if you inadvertantly spray it on the ground)
the wife came in from shoppin and started breakdancing in the drive...all I got was hot tougue and cold shoulder for dinner.
