I am very paranoid about having a berating fail on the road, so always check for heat on a long haul when pop arises, never dunk when hot, always pump in grease after boat recovered befor journey home, and again befor next trip, every two trips strip clean out inner/outer burns and repackage may be ott but been ok shofar and only takes 20 mans to do, also carry spare set of burns with me in case of probs

I'm not convinced any of those bearings are new and if they were, the hub should have been in a much better condition following a service or at least you should have been advised of their poor condition before the works were completed.

As Poly/others have said, you're bolloxed Put it down as school fees, no-one was hurt, boat & car survived, move on. Life's too short to be bitter about something so insignificant in the big scheme.

+1 at least when you've fitted the new axle you will know what you've got to work with and can keep it in good condition

I had a bearing failure, my own fault for trusting the bloke I bought the trailer from, I replaced all the bearings and brakes myself then used the trailer for the rest of the season, within six months of replacing them I sold the boat.

I told my buyer that what I had done and gave him the receipt for the parts, I said it was his responsibility to make sure the wheels were ok because you never know, that evening I got a call as he'd had a bearing fail on the way home. I helped him replace them all the following weekend and the all looked like yours, knackered and I knew they were six months old.

Probably doesn't help, but you never know, your trailer guy might have told you the truth, bearings rot and seize very quickly once dipped in salt water.

Very true I change my own and grease frequently never had an issue in years, then had a failure in March out of the blue and I know they were changed 8 months before and dipped in the salty stuff half a dozen times max. As pikey Dave says sh1t happens
