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.

Grease Cap Plug for E-Z Lube Grease Caps - Qty 2 - RG04-010

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (804 Customer Reviews)

I bought these dust caps, the matching rubber ends, along with the etrailer driver tool. (290-991 for the size caps I have.) I was having issues with the Kodiak disc brake/Hub combo opening being a tad smaller and bent a couple of caps putting on with a dead blow rubber mallet. So ordered some new caps and the etrailer driver tool. Having the driver tool to keep these going straight and from warping (It fits pretty snug around the cap.) and really helped out. I also put a little grease around the edge of the rubber seals to help ward off water. What I like about e-trailer is they have about everything you need for trailers at one place. Their folks are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful when you call.

Still working great!

I tried this product for an aviation application. I own a DHC-2 Beaver aircraft that has a tail wheel axle that is 1.125 inch ID. I wanted an end cap that was removable because the axle tube is used to steer the aircraft with a hand held bar during some ground movement. So far the rubber cap seems to work. It has remained on during several flights. It is easy to remove and insert. The only problem may occur if the cap mounting area of the axle become oily or greasy which may allow the cap to slip off. It seems to need a friction fit to stay on.


Comments
Same as described above.

Good replacements for the ones that cracked on the trailer from the factory. In fact I gave some to my friend for his trailer also. Good replacement.

I have a Haulmark car trailer with 3500# axles and these rubber caps fit my metal grease caps perfect. Thanks ETrailer! Dave

These are the caps that get removed to pump grease into an Ultra-lube hub. Perfect fit on my trailer with AL-KO 8490 axles and 10x2.25 brakes. Very nice price for a product that can be hard to find locally. I can't prove it, but my research suggests these cross reference to: + 85-10 + AL KO #568067 + Hayes #09213611 + TruRyde RG01-010 + Dexter 085-001-00

I've used eTrailer before and they've always had what I needed and my CSR - Ashley E. has been very helpful. Product is what I needed, shipping was on time, could not ask for better service



- RG04-010
by:

Good quick fix, can't find them in the local parts store. ships fast, the only thing I don't like is that they only last about a year so I buy extras so I always have some on hand when needed. Of course I'll buy them again and do recommend them. Don't have any photos at this time, maybe next time.

I am ecstatic. These are direct OEM replacements. I was left questioning similar products listed on Amazon in regards to size and durometer rating. 5 stars for me!



- RG04-010
by:

Caps came in a timely manner, exactly what I needed. I sold the trailer, so don't know how they are doing now.



- RG04-010
by:

Lots of information/data/specs on their products, just the kind of stuff that helps me figure out if its the right part, thanks etrailer.com!

These grease caps had only light cracking after one year of service. Most caps that I have used in the past would be cracked and leaking after one season of boating, some wouldn’t even make a full season and would require a replacement. Rubber rot seems to be a serious issue with all of these plugs, but these held up the best of any I’ve used. After greasing the bearings I always replace the caps with new fresh caps yearly, the cost is minimal compared to the damage that may happen if not properly cared for.

This is the second time I have ordered items from etrailer and am extremely pleased with the way sales staff assisted me then and now. The sales staff member assisting me with the order of grease cap plugs was Mariah A. She was great. I received my order as ordered on November 2nd,2020 and did the simple install right away on my ATV trailer. I will definitely do business with etrailer again. Thanks again Mariah A.

Works great and keeps my grease from getting all over my wheel.

Fast, Good and Cheap. Usually you only get to pick two but with etrailer you get all three. My boat trailer company didn’t even have the correct parts for their own trailer but etrailer did. I’ll be back.

Product worked as advertised. I have been a customer of etrailer.com for a while now because of the quick response to purchase and customer service.



- RG04-010

I used these to replace old rotten ones. Truly I felt the fit was a little loose. They were used on a boat trailer and I’m not sure if they’d be water tight. I should have pulled them off after being submerged to check but I haven’t. I’ll put that on the “to do” list.

Got 6 of them - work perfectly on our boat trailer. Factory grease caps on the trailer were a weird material that swole up in time. Needed replacing.

1-year in and so far these seem to be holding up as good or better than the originals.

I cannot honestly give these a good rating as I cleaned up my old ones and will be putting them back into service. While the rubber on these is soft and pliable compared to the original equipment, the tolerances are all wrong to be able to get a snug seal. The groove in the seal that fits over the sheet metal cap is too wide in the first place, something like 1/16" with the metal being probably half that. Second thing is the hole is slightly larger then the center of the rubber when it is installed meaning this plug does not make a tight seal, my old stiff ones make a tighter seal and will be reused. Also, the part of the rubber plug in the inside has a much smaller lip the catch the metal then the old ones which probably makes it easier to get off and put back on but also means it can fall off much easier as the tolerances are such that it moves around and does not seal tight. In my experience I cannot recommend these.

Nothing has changed, my opinion is still the same and they still sit in a parts bin unused solely to be used as backup in case of emergency.
