Video Transcript for TruRyde E-Z Lube Grease Cap Plug Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the TruRyde rubber lube plug that fits the 1.18-inch lubed dust cap. It's sold as a quantity of one. Part number is DC-RP. For the quantity of two, part number is RG04-010. These dust plugs are very inexpensive, but very critical component to any trailer hub system with the E-Z Lube axles. These, you can see we've got one missing here.

Our design to cap this off preventing water, dirt, and debris from getting inside the hub where it can cause major problems. In your hub you've got bearings that are going to ride on races. You can see the grease in there that keeps those working properly. Once dirt and debris gets in there, it starts wearing on those. The life of our bearings is going to be greatly reduced.

At the extreme side of that, it could cost us an entire axle. It's a very and simple thing to install.You can see the lip all the way around the outside here. That's going to go right inside the metal ring. Place them in. Push it in all the way around and that's going to be sealed up at that point.

We'll not have any issues with moisture or debris getting in there, causing us headaches. Now here's another great example of a dust cap that needs replaced. You can see it's kind of deteriorating here. We can start to see cracks in it. It doesn't fit properly all the way around.

That allows an area for the moisture to go right in. To remove it, it's quite simple. You just pop it out. Grab our new one and we'll put it in place. That'll complete our look at the TruRyde grease cap plug for the E-Z Lube grease caps.

Dust caps eventually dry out and crack, or fail unexpectedly. Keep a few of these for those just in case moments.

Like others I could not find this product locally, so I went to the internet. Although it was a very inexpensive material, etrailer.com allowed the order to be placed for less than $5 AWESOME!! Other companies would not process the small value order. Easy finding the odd ball part at etrailer as well Easy tranasction! Good communication back of order confirmation Good communication back of order shipped Good communication of the order had been delivered And the product was of great quality and fit perfect. Got the order in 2 days after it shipped. I will use etrailer.com for my next parts order. Thank You Travis

This part was exactly what I needed. I had gone to three different parts houses where I live and no one could help me...they wanted to sell me completely different bearing buddy sets. I found etrailer online and had it in less than a week! Whenever I need parts for my trailer this is where I will shop!

Bought these caps as spares,low price and cheap insurance. They do wear out over time as the covers have a sharp lip. Ez lube spindles are handier than hip pockets.

Spares are still in the box.the couple of bucks are long forgotten,but the assurance I have immediate replacements has not.great product.

by:

Product appears well designed and made. It fit my wheel hubs perfectly on my trailer. Exactly what I was looking for. Only issue I had with the ordering experience was the lack of tracking data available after the item was shipped. There was never any delivery date given or means to track the shipment progress. Other than that, the items were received in 1 week in good condition. I will definitely order from etrailer again.

  • Replacement Rubber Plug for EZ Lube Spindles
    I do have an option for you but the Rubber Lube Plug part # DC-RP that you purchased is designed to fit a 1.18" diameter opening and will not work for you assuming the plug you measured is indeed 1.5" diameter. Instead, the better option for you would be to replace the entire grease cap. This way you get a brand new seal and will not have to worry about the rubber cap falling out or not working. In order to recommend the correct grease cap we would need to know the diameter of where...

  • Does the Rubber Cap on a Dust Cover Have to be Removed to Fill EZ Lube Trailer Axles with Grease
    You will need direct access to the zerk fitting to fill the hub with grease. If there is a rubber cap in the way like # DC-RP, then you will have to take it off, fill the grease, and then replace the cap. I have included a link to our FAQ article on grease for you.

    We do have a set of grease caps that are 1-1/4 inch. Check out the Grease Cap Plug for E-Z Lube Grease Caps, # RG04-010. These caps will fit much more snug than the 1.18 inch ones you currently have.

  • Rubber Lube Plugs Needed for Triton Boat Trailer
    Part # DC-RP for a single plug and # RG04-010 for a pair may actually be what you need. Instead of measuring the outer diameter of the grease plug itself, you will want to measure the dust cap hole. If this measures 1.18 inches then this is the correct plug for you.

  • How To Determine Correct Hub Assembly For a 17-Foot Boat Trailer
    The easiest way to determine what hub assembly you will need is to get the part numbers of the inner and outer bearings and the grease seal part number from the hub assembly that is on the trailer now. If you do not have the old bearings, you will need to measure the spindle on your trailer to determine the size bearings that you will need, and what hub assembly will work. Trailer hub assemblies are not a universal fit. If you can let me know the part numbers of your bearings and grease...

  • Which Rubber Plug Fits Redline Trailer Hub Grease Cap 21-43-1?
    The reason the Trailer Hub Grease Cap, 2.72" - Drive-In for E-Z Lube, 5.2-8K Axles - Qty 1 # 21-43-1 you were looking at does not include the rubber plug is because Redline Trailer Parts who makes this cap does not offer it with the plug.

Based on this information, I recommend the replacement Bearing Kit, Item # BK3-200, which includes bearings, races, grease seals, and cotter pin. For hub grease caps, I recommend the Redline Trailer Hub grease Cap for E-Z Lube, Item # 21-43-1. The dust caps are sold separately so if you need them I recommend...

  • Replacement Grease Cap Rubber Plug and Tips on Driving In Dust Caps/Bearing Protectors
    If the hole in the dust cap is 1.18 inches then you could use replacement rubber cap # DC-RP. For a pair use # RG04-010. Bearing Buddies can be hard to drive in.
