Video Transcript for TruRyde Grease Caps RG04-040 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the TruRyde grease cap. The grease cap fits your easy lube trailer hubs with a 2" inner diameter. It also includes the rubber lube plug for easy lube axles. The grease cap is going to feature that rubber lube plug that can be easily removed to give easy access to the fitting. All you have to do is remove the plug and then it's going to expose that zerk fitting or the lube fitting. That way you can get the grease in your system as necessary.

To get them installed, they're a drive in installation. The units can be installed using a small block of wood or a soft mallet. We also offer a dust cap driver tool here at etrailer.com. It's sold separately with part #290-001. It makes the installation process much easier. Taking a few measurements of the unit.

This end is going to be the portion that drives in to the hub. If we take a measurement of that using a precision measuring device, this is our digital caliper. That's going to give us a measurement of 1.99 inches. The portion that fits into the hub so this small lip right here, that's going to give us a depth measurement of 5/16ths of an inch and the portion that sticks out from the hub is going to measure 7/8ths of an inch long. Again, this does come in a 2 pack.

That's going to do it for today's look at the TruRyde grease cap.

A perfect replacement for the battered and worn caps on my EZ Lube axles. Order dust cap driver p/n 290-991 for easy installation and removal during service. 115903


Comments

Thanks for taking the time to follow up with me. Ive only put a few hundred miles of use on the trailer but everything is working great. Ive actually recommended etrailer to my father, a friend of mine and anyone at work who would listen made easier by the fact that I had everything I ordered shipped to my job instead of home. Barring an emergency situation that requires an immediate solution you have my business in the future.

Grease Cap fit perfect and the rubber plug fits nice and tight. No water or dirt is getting inside. I highly recommend you purchase the Dust Cap Driver Tool as I did. They fit tight and the tool puts equal pressure all the way around. Your going to flatten the edge out if you don't use this tool for sure. Do it right the first time. 106148

What I wanted at a fair price. Shipping on this item was reasonable, so I'm a happy customer. I've done a number of transactions with this vendor, and for the most part have been completely satisfied. My only problem is, because I live in Alaska, shipping for any larger items is price prohibitive. 150902

They are working out just fine. They provide easy access to lube the bearings, but keep the hub clean and dry.

Good quality for a replacement grease cap. I don't reuse grease caps because they distort from the removal and installation process. Before you install the cap put Purmatex Ultra Black gasket maker (maximum oil resistance) on the lip and you'll have a good leak free seal. 122158

Works as designed and no leaks.

I just got around to installing the grease dust caps on my 2004 Procraft duel axle boat trailer today. They were a perfect fit, nice and tight. I used my race tool to hammer them in to get even pressure without denting the cap. The caps extended out a little farther than the old ones but isn't a problem, just a little more room for additional grease. The only problem that I was a little disappointed with was the rubber caps that came with the grease caps were to loose. The old grease caps weren't that old and the rubber caps from those worked perfectly. The caps arrived a little sooner than I expected, which was great. This isn't my first order from etrailer and won't be the last. 480816

I was more than satisfied with my first experience with etrailer. The product was reasonably priced and when received was of excellent quality. The shipping of my product was received well within the expected time. The part was just what I needed for my Harley Trailer! I will certainly recommend etrailer to anyone needing their products and will also order from them the next time I need any products they carry! 123781

I recently purchased 2 sets of the RG04-040 grease caps for my Holmes car trailer. My original ones were leaking grease all over the wheels and were dented. The caps from etrailer arrived just a few days after I placed the order, they are high quality and installed nicely. In addition, etrailer followed up with me on the purchase. I am very pleased with the product, the quick delivery and etrailer taking the time to follow up. I plan on using etrailer for future trailer needs and recommend others give them a try as well. So far, the experience is flawless! Darin Jobe - Winchester, VA 290012


Comments

The grease caps are still on and no grease is coming out around them, so Id say they are doing their job to perfection and I stand behind my original review. If and when I have the need for trailer components, I will be shopping at etrailer. Great products

What's to say. They work. Problem is, and it is problem with any type of hub cover, if you use, even a plastic or rubber hammer, most of the time they will not go on and stay on as designed. So new ones are needed. These fit nice and tight and I even made a special tool. A 2" long, 2" diameter galvanized pipe, with a cover. Fits over the outer part and hits up against the ridge. Place on hub, install tool, hit a few times with hammer and they seat perfectly. 202931

When I ordered the parts I found I could order the whole kit for less than what it would cost for just the parts I needed so that's what I ordered. The brakes I received were a perfect fit (an exact match for what I had).. Everything went back together very quickly and a year after installing the parts my trailer brakes are still working fine. I am very satisfied and the next time I need trailer parts, etrailer.com will be one of the first places I look. 490085

I needed to replace the worn out caps and rubber boots on my dual axle trailer. While I was at it, I thought I'd redo everything, repack the bearings, replace the seals, etc. etrailer.com made it easy to do. They sent the right parts the first time, with best pricing on the web, and all is good. I happened by this site by accident on a search engine and will return when I need more trailer parts in the future. Thanks etrailer! 246006

The quality of the product is good, the delivery and service was good.They just do not fit my 3,500lb Dexter Axle on my Casita 17' trailer. I measured with a mic and the size is just about the same as the original but they will not go on. I tried for over 30 minutes. I may have to file the edges and see if this works. I would not recommend for a Dexter Axle, buy the originals if you can find them. 231694

I bought a set of trailer tires and a set of easy grease axle covers at the same time. Sometime I lost one of the covers of the passenger side of the trailer. I called etrailer and they had a record of the diameter of the axle cover so I could buy another pair. I received reasonably quick shipping of my items and was glad they had a record of the size I needed. 374412

Although I read on etrailer that the grease cap needed was these 1.986" models, they would not install. No amount of tapping and rotating and moving around would allow them to fit. Compared to my old ones, barely larger by a couple of thousands, but enough to make them useless. Wondering if made in China with poor quality or something...very disappointing. 183355

The bearing ave two years of use on them this year. That's about 6000 miles and the still feel tight and smooth when I spin'em. Will put new on in early spring 2017 for peace of mind. Etrailer's the bomb - great price and customer service & quick delivery. Word of advice - buy at least twice as many seals as you need. Cheap insurance. 312293

I got these new caps for my EZ lube spindles on my boat trailer. I wondered why I always had a little water in the bearings. The guy at the local trailer place told me these caps weren't water tight. I replaced them with the regular steel caps and he was right. No more water in the bearings. They would be ok if not on a boat trailer. 243362

The plug on end is too small. Can push side to side and spin around in circles. Very poor made product. It definitely will not keep water and dirt from entering axle and bearings. Very disappointed with product. I know the seal on end is supposed to fit very tight. The original plugs fit very tight since 2002. 492488

This tool was delivered fast and secure by etrailer along with two hub caps for my landscape trailer. Honestly, took longer to get out the tools and put away thann to install.

Grease caps had a nice tight fit and went it with the help of a rubber mallet and have stayed put. The rubber insert has recently failed on side and sprayed grease all over my rim on a recent trip. Do yourself a favor and buy an extra set of the rubber inserts to keep for the future. 387571

This is the second time I have order this product, The first ones worked fine, so I order some extra ones, over time the rubber plug in the center will dry root, and the grease will start leaking out. You have to replace them ever so often. This is a good place to order from, thanks. 264249

These caps are specific to the Dexter E-Z Lube system, which has a grease fitting on the end of the axle. My Boy Scout trailer uses this system - and the original caps had suffered through quite a bit of tough use. These are a perfect replacement, and are working great. 386753

Do you have a question about this Trailer Bearings Races Seals Cap?


  • What Size Grease Seal And Dust Cap is Needed on a 3,500 Lbs. Axle With L44649 Outer Bearing
  • The size seal you will need will depend on the part number of your inner bearing. If the outer bearing part number is L44649 and the inner bearing part number is also L44649, then you will use a TruRyde Seals, # RG06-020. If the outer bearing part number is L44649 and the inner bearing part number is L68149, then it will be TruRyde Seals, # RG06-050. The size grease cap you will need is 1.986 inches.

  • How Does The EZ Lube Spindle # R20384EZ Work On A Boat Trailer
  • On the EZ Lube Spindle # R20384EZ you do not need a grease fitting for the hole on the inside end of the spindle. This is an EZ lube spindle which is designed to allow you to put grease onto the bearings by using the zerk fitting on the threaded end of the spindle. You will not want to block the hole that is on the inside end of the spindle. When the hub is installed on the EZ lube spindle it will form a cavity around the wheel bearings and when you pump grease into the spindle through...

  • Trailer Grease Caps with Zerk Grease Fitting
  • Grease Cap set # RG04-040 are regular grease caps that have a rubber plug on the end to access a grease zerk fitting on the spindle (end of the axle). They install the same as regular grease caps. It sounds like you are looking for bearing protectors such as # BB1980A which are for regular spindles. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Bearing Protector Grease Cap Installation on a Boat Trailer with EZ-Lube Spindles and Disc Brakes
  • When installing a disc brake kit, like the Titan Disc Brake Kit, # T4843400, on your boat trailer I recommend staying with the original EZ-Lube grease caps, like part # RG04-040. Bearing protectors are not recommended for use with EZ-Lube spindles because the grease zerk in the end of the spindle will interfere with the inside of the bearing protector when pressed into the hub. Grease zerks are pressed into the end of EZ-Lube spindles and are usually very hard to remove. If you were...

  • How to Choose a Grease Cap for a Trailer that Does Not Have Grease Caps
  • To ensure that your spindle is not sticking out of your hub farther than it should, I would recommend verifying that all of your bearings and seals are seated correctly and the hub is tightened down correctly. When tightening the hub to the spindle, the spindle nut should be tightened until it is snug and then backed off slightly until the tang washer or cotter pin will fit through the spindle nut. I have attached a photo showing where the bearings and seal should sit on a spindle for...

The # 23-26 and # 23-27 has bolts holes that are 2-7/8 inches apart on center.

  • Grease Cap Recommendation to Replace AL KO Part Number 363277

  • What Size Grease Cap Will Fit 1.95-inch Hub and EZ-Lube Spindles
  • You identified the correct grease cap, part # RG04-040. This is sold as a set of two caps. If you ever need replacement rubber plugs we also offer these as a set of two, part # RG04-010. Since your trailer uses EZ-Lube zerk fittings on the spindles you will be better off with a grease cap that has a removable plug. This will enable you to get quick access to the grease fitting without having to take off the grease caps. If you want to simplify installation of the grease caps you might...

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Dust Caps for 2012 Karavan SeaDoo Move Trailer
  • I will be happy to help you out. There are a couple of ways you can determine which dust caps fit your Karavan-made trailer. First, you can measure the opening on the hub where the dust caps fit. The measurement has to be as accurate as possible so you will need to use dial or digital calipers. The other way is to retrieve the outer bearing number at least, if not both the inner and outer bearing numbers. The bearing numbers are stamped into the sides of the bearings. The outer one you...

  • How to Determine the Correct Size Bearing Protectors for a 1985 Ranger Boat Trailer
  • With an EZ Lube type of axle, a bearing protector like a Bearing Buddy will not fit. You would need to use a drive-in type of grease cap with a plug in the end to access the zerk fitting on the axle. Take a look at # RG04-040 as an example. We have different size bearing protectors depending on the inside hub bore where they fit. You will need to measure the hub bore with some dial calipers to get the most accurate measurement possible to find the correct ones that fit. They will actually...

  • My Axle Has No Cotter Pin Hole Can I Install Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle?
  • The # BK2-100 Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle L44649/L68149 Bearings 10-19 Double Lip Seal will work. You have EZ Lube spindles which do not use a cotter pin. The spindle has a tube in it for the grease to be pumped in. Instead it uses a tang washer, which is the bendable tab on spacer you were referring to. Even the manufacturer said the # BK2-100 kit was designed for hubs that use the number 84 spindle. This Kit comes with both a cotter pin for standard spindles and a tang washer for...

  • Replacing Dexter Hubs To Transition to a GMC Truck Wheel Bolt Pattern
  • To determine the correct hub to replace the existing hub on your horse trailer I will need the inner and outer bearing numbers and the seal part numbers to select the proper parts for your spindle. The 8-256 number that you see on your hub is a casting number and even if I could match it to a Dexter hub assembly it would most likely not match up with the correct bearings. Remove a hub and you should find the part numbers on the back side of the bearings and the seal. You will need to...

  • How to Determine the Correct Size Grease Caps for a Southwest Kendall Trailer
  • In order to determine the correct size grease cap, the best thing to do would be to take apart one of the hubs and get the outer bearing and race numbers. You can also get the hub bore inner diameter using dial calipers for the most accurate measurement. I have included a video on removing a hub below. This will determine the correct size you need whether it is the DC200L-DCRP, # RG04-040, or another size. I have included a link to our grease cap main page below. I went out to the warehouse...

You could use the Lubed Dust Cap and Rubber Plug, # DC200L-DCRP, that you referenced, but that only comes with one grease cap and plug. You may also be interested in the Grease Caps, # RG04-040, which is the same as # DC200L-DCRP, but comes with two grease caps and plugs.

  • Bearing Buddy and Standard Grease Caps to Fit 1.98-Inch Hub Bore
  • All Bearing Buddy bearing protectors have the same depth, just different diameters. Also, some are threaded to fit threaded hubs while others are not. If your spindles have a grease zerk fitting on the end you will not need to use a Bearing Buddy; that grease zerk means you have EZ-Lube spindles which provide an alternate way to maintain your hubs grease level. For such spindles use part # RG04-040 If it is the actual castle nut that hits the inside surface of the Bearing Buddy then...

  • Do Trailer Grease Caps # RG04-040 Come with Rubber Caps
  • The Grease Caps, # RG04-040, come with the rubber caps. It would be a good idea to just use all new parts. The old ones could have unseen damage that may affect performance. Or, if they are still functional, you would at least have some spares. You may also be interested in the Dust Cap Driver Tool, # 290-991, to make dust cap installation easier.
