    I am one of the most unhandy guys alive:so I need to find a place or person that does bearing replacement.

    Even though I live in SE PA,I'm over in South Jersey at least once or twice a week--so SJ also works for me

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Tom

    tom,
    it is a fairly easy and straightforward job, don't really have to be too handy. do you have a 2 or 4 wheel trailer? Brakes?

    all you need is a few simple hand tools and some type of parts cleaner, the bearings probably aeren't bad. i always re-pack mine yearly, new seals and clean/replace bearing buddy's as needed. eastern marine in newark de does the work i believe, but anyplace that sells trailers, even storage , lawn & garden types ought to do the work.

    Tom, as Dixie said, it's really a simple DIY with minimal tools... feel free to shoot me an email with questions and I'd be happy to give a call to walk you through it.

    Tom,
    I live 30 min south of you. Bring the trailer over and I'll do it in exchange for a fishing trip. If the trailer is to far gone I might be able to get up there, but would be easyer for me to do it at my house.Email me if this suits you.
