    Trailer wheel bearing %^&$%^#$ washer is stuck

    Franks suggestion of applying heat should work, with a little persuasion applied to the side of the race. Don't mess up the spindle tho. If this is something you are not comfortable with, call a mobille trailer repair outfit to do it. . . .

    They are usually bracketed on and removable... if too rusted, sawzall to the u-bolt should do it. Most boaters like them to help center the boat when retrieving, especially in conditions with a lot of wind / current. Replacement sets are readily available through most trailer supplies. . . . .
