    Just stripped down my caravans wheel bearings after some idiot towed it a few miles with the hand brake just a couple of clicks on:ashamed:

    I don't think that the oil seals need replacing yet though!

    Amazingly the bearings are fine, no discoloration and glass hard, so at least my stupidity was cheap! But the brakes took some cleaning!

    Wrap them in a bit of duct tape, they'll be fine :laughing:

    Remember there is nothing that shows poor engineering as wrinkles in the duck tape :vsad:

    Combine Them with the Gents whose bearings needed greased 10 years ago and it is all good to go.
