After making the investment in a boat trailer by doing research and deciding what it is that you need and what it is that you want, it is important to maintain and protect this investment. You are talking about something that is frequently submerged in water, after all. With that being said, it is obvious that the bearings and hubs of a boat trailer be checked and greased frequently. Your boat trailer should also be rinsed off with freshwater if it is being used in saltwater applications. Also, be sure to check the lights with the help of a family member or buddy to be sure that all functions are operating correctly. "Sea Scum" may also build up, so keep it clean and wiped free of the nasty stuff. If your trailer is steel, be sure to paint any scratches to keep it from turning into a rust bucket. Proper maintenance will insure many great years of service from your trailer.
