A lot of trailer hubs have a grease nipple on, so can be repacked before a run or prior to immersion ( obviously waiting for any heat to dissipate ), massively extends the life of the bearings

Never seen nor heard of waterproof bearings you can pack, packing them from outside will compromise the seal so doesnt make any sense to me that one?

Never said they were waterproof, I said trailer hubs

How on earth has an argument sprung up about something as boringly prosaic as trailer hub bearings?

So the option is to replace them with a normal hub with taper? Is that possible?

Looks like a 2007 trailer which could make the bearings 11/12yrs old ?
Even if they are sealed I'd be getting wary about them and for all they'll cost I'd replace them and establish if they are "sealed for life" or taper rollers.

When I ran the unbraked, taper roller hubs I bought full hubs first time then after that I'd just repair the hubs I took off and put them aside as spares and used them for the next swap out. Replaced them at least once a year.

I also wouldn't assume a bearing is ok because it's not "rumbling" when you spin the wheel. I've stripped bearings that weren't rumbling and found them badly rusted and that puts them a couple of hundred miles from failing.

Been there, got the "T" shirt (twice). M9 wheel with hub flew off, A9 Hub collapsed onto the brakes and seized (bearings 6 weeks old with less than a thousand miles on them.)
Just not worth the gamble
