stripped down the bearings and brakes for the first time in 7 years and the only signs of any problem was the discoloured grease and the bearings had some pitting on the bearing surface top layer otherwise allwas good
fitted a new jockey wheel clamp as the original threads has gone
fitted new bearings and seals to each wheel (4 of em) for 80 quid and packed them full of grease like i did originally so hopefully they should be good for another 7 years if i am lucky, the brakes were perfect, slight surface rust but nothing to worry about, coating a few bits with copper grease really helped keep everything shipshape
will see if the new sbs trailer for the rib lasts as long as the indespension trailer has..
cheers to my friend for the loan of his marina spot while i refurbed the trailer
