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.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
