Maintenance of Snipe braked trailer
I have a Snipe Y5-1300 roller (Y series) braked trailer which is now kept in France. It was new in March 2013. It has Waterproof bearings?
I think Alko bearings and brakes. Knott-Avonride towing hitch. Flushing kit.
Typically it is only 5 miles to the launching slip.
On return to the house I flush the hubs out well with both the flushing hubs and a karcher long lance to really douse the wheels. The whole trailer gets a good wash down each time. However, it is then parked with the brakes off until next times use. (Brakes locked up when left with the brakes on.)
What should I do annually or more regularly to the trailer to ensure 100% perfect life and reliability? ie grease or renew brake shoes etc.
Also would bearing protectors be any good with waterproof bearings?
