K-Dee Launcher trailer question

2 posts in this topic

I bought a used Pro V mounted on a K-Dee Launcher trailer. I love the trailer but I was wondering how to grease the bearings. I am acquinted with bearing buddies with the piston, but this has grease jerk under a rubber cap in the center of the wheel. My question is how do you know when you have enough grease in it.

Pop off the rubber dust cap, pump grease slowly into the grease fitting until just a very little starts coming through the outer bearing (you should be able to see a little around the outer edge on the inside of the cap. Replace the rubber dust cap making sure you get it seated all the way around.

With this style the grease goes through the spindle and into the center of the hub. It then goes both directions - to both the inside and outside bearings. When you get a little at the outside hopefully you have a little coming through the inside bearing too, but there is no way to check or see it to verify.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
