Bring on the to do list!

Been up to the boat today & came away with a depressing to do list

The trailer needs new bearings & tyres.
New jockey wheel & clamp
The bunks need re carpeting
Needs to be serviced/winterised
Need to find & fix a power problem which im thinking is either the coils or just dirty carbs.
Impact mat needs re covering & glueing down
& a few bits of paint could do with touching up


Nothing major but Ill get there eventually!

In no particular order...

1/ Fit the light/antenna pole early spring to the transom + run wiring under deck
2/ Regrease N/S trailer wheel bearing and refit lock nut
3/ Engine service including impeller + gear oil change
4/ Machine polish engine cowl and apply coat of Collenite wax for uber-wet look finish
5/ Fit LED waterproof marker lights to trailer mudguards

May sound like a stupid question but ive only ever changed bearings once before & that was on my old picton trailer & my dad helped me with that. Is the only way to get the part number to take the bearings out & write it down? or could you (I cant remember the make of my trailer of the top of my head) search online with the trailer details and find them there?
