Expert Answers about Lubrimatic

  • Best Wheel Bearing Grease for a Trailer
  • The highest quality grease we carry for wheel bearing is the LMX red grease like the part # L11390 that you referenced. If you are looking for a brand that is available in both a cartridge and a can you would want the part # L10321 for the can and part # L10320 for the cartridge. LMX Red is heavy-duty, premium grease for the toughest lubricating jobs on the biggest, heaviest equipment. It performs better under higher pressures and temperatures than standard multi-purpose grease, and...

  • How Much Grease is Needed in an EZ Lube Axle
  • I can help you with greasing up your EZ Lube Axle. First thing I would check would be that the grease is not coming out of the back of the axle through the seal. If this is the case you will need to replace the seal. Our tubes like # L11390 have 14 ounces which should be more than enough to fill your axle. You will want to continue to pump grease until you begin to see the outer bearing move or you see grease seeping through the outer bearing. Make sure you pump the grease slowly...

  • Is it Advisable to Mix Different Types of Wheel Bearing Grease in Trailer Bearing
  • Certain types of grease are compatible with each other but since you do not know what type is in your trailer now we recommend that you remove the existing grease from your trailer wheel bearings before refilling them. Even if you know what type of grease is currently in the bearings there is some chance that the old grease may be contaminated from moisture. Cleaning out all the existing grease and replacing all of it with fresh is the way to go. I have linked an article that may be...

  • What is the Recommended Maintenance Schedule on a Trailer
  • The recommended schedule to grease your wheel bearings is every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. You can use the red grease # L11390 for trailer wheel bearings if you wanted. You can also use wheel bearing grease # L11465 which is designed for use on trailer running gear, including wheel bearings. It also has a slightly higher temperature rating, 520 degrees, compared to 510 degrees for the red grease. When adding new grease you will need to make sure that the new...

  • Are Red, Marine and Wheel Bearing Grease Compatible with Each Other

  • Wheel Bearing Grease Recommendation for 7k Lippert Axle
  • The RED grease is the best grease for trailer hubs. It's marine grade and the most heavy-duty grease around so its what we recommend the most. For that you would want # L11390. This grease also happens to be the most universal. You are going to need to measure your current spindle to determine whether or not you need a 2-1/8 inch seal like # RG06-090 or if you need a 2-1/4 inch seal like # RG06-070. You will need to take the measurement of the spindle where the grease seal rides....

  • Do you Still Have to Repack Bearings Annually in Trailer if Using Bearing Buddies
  • Bearing Buddies do make greasing the hubs much easier but it is still recommended that you repack all of the bearing annually so that you can get all of the old grease and possible contaminants out of the hubs. I attached a review video on repacking and inspecting bearings as well. LMX Red grease is the highest quality grease rated for wheel bearing use. I would recommend going with that. For that you would want part # L10321.

  • How Often Should Trailer Hub Bearings be Greased
  • Standard tapered trailer wheel bearings are recommended to be re-packed with fresh bearing grease about every year or every 12,000 miles under normal use. In certain conditions this interval could be shorter, such as if you routinely tow the trailer under conditions of extreme heat or near its maximum load capacity. This and other recommended trailer maintenance procedures are outlined in the linked article, which may interest you. With the EZ lube zerk fitting you'll want to pump grease...

  • When Should Trailer Wheel Bearings be Replaced
  • We recommended to repack the wheel bearings on your trailer every 12 months or 12,000 miles. There is not a specific guideline as far as actually replacing the bearings. When repacking them with grease, you will also just want to check for any damage or wear and replace anything if needed. As long as everything looks fine, there is no need to replace the bearings based on time alone. If you will be packing the bearings by hand, I recommend using a grease like the LubriMatic Disc/Drum...

  • Tail Light Fuse on Truck Keeps Blowing When Trailer Wiring is Connected and Then Trailer is Coupled
  • There are a few things that you will want to check since your tail light fuse keeps blowing when you couple your trailer. Start off by checking the connector on your truck and your trailer. Make sure that it is clean and free of debris and corrosion as that can cause power from other circuits to bleed over to the running lights. Using dielectric grease like part # 11755 on your connectors can help prevent water damage and corrosion. If the connectors look good then you will want...

  • I spoke with my contact at Lubrimatic and found that they are compatible. The Lubrimatic marine grease is a calcium sulfonate base that is compatible with the lithium complex grease you are currently using. We actually have an FAQ article that covers this very subject. In the article there is a handy table that lists the compatibility of various grease formulations. I have included a link to the FAQ for you.

  • Troubleshooting P.L. Error on Prodigy Brake Controller 90185 Installed on a 2005 Yukon XL
  • I would actually check the connection between brake controller and your factory port. Often you would see the P.L. if the connector wiggled slightly loose from where it is plugged into your junction box, especially if it is only happening once in awhile. Try unplugging the brake controller from the junction box port and let it sit for three minutes. When you plug it back in, make sure the connectors are firmly clicking together. You will need to reset the controller brake power and...

If you want to use a heavier-duty unit we offer Powerbuilt...

  • How to Prevent Corrosion on a 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • For a cover designed to fit over standard 4-way connectors we have the # C58200. Another very helpful idea will be to put dielectic grease on the pins of your 4-way. This will actually be your best way to fight the corrosion. For that you would want the part # 11755. Basically you will need to apply a liberal amount of it all over the pins of the connectors before you put the cover on the 4-way and you will not have to worry about corrosion.

  • Trailer Brakes Not Working On A 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • The first thing you will want to do is check the inside of both the vehicle's and trailer's connectors for debris or corrosion. If corrosion is present, you will then want to spray some electrical parts cleaner on the inside of the connectors to clear the debris. The next thing you will want to do is test the 5 o'clock pin at the back of the vehicle's trailer connector to make sure it is receiving power when the manual override on the brake controller is activated, you will need to have...

This will work perfectly on your EZ Lube spindles.

  • At What Low Temperature Does White Lithium Grease Become Ineffective
  • I spoke with my contact at Lubrimatic about white lithium grease # L11357. He said for that grease the low temperature that it would still be effective is 0 degrees F. For colder temperatures the best option is the biobased white lithium grease # L10308 good for 40 degrees F below zero.

  • What Grease is Compatible With Castrol Pyroplex Red Grease
  • I checked the composition of the Castrol Pyroplex Red grease and it is a lithium complex grease. It will be compatible with the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease, part # L11390 that you have referenced, which is also a lithium complex grease. The only grease that the lithium complex is not compatible with is the barium complex, bentonite clay, and polyurea (conventional). I am including a link to a FAQ page of lubricating grease. It has a chart that will show the compatibilities...

  • Possible Causes for a Yoke Style Hitch Coupler to Bind
  • As a first step I suggest you try using a lithium grease to lubricate the moving parts; you could try a grease such as part # L10302, UltraLube Biobased, Multipurpose Lithium Grease - 16-oz Tub. Since the trailer in question has been used by a previous owner there is always the chance that there could be hidden wear on the internal components. Even in normal use these parts can wear and eventually need to be replaced. If an under-sized hitch ball was used (such as a 1-7/8 inch ball in...

  • Can LubriMatic White Lithium Grease be Safely Mixed with Existing Grease on Trailer Bearings
  • The LubriMatic White Lithium Grease, part # L11350, can be used on your wheel bearings. If you want to remove it, you will just need to wipe the parts down as best as you can, and then you can use some brake cleaner to further clean the bearings. Take a look at our grease FAQ article I have linked for you. One of the most important things to consider when mixing different types of grease is that some types are compatible with each other, some are not. If you are unsure of grease compatibility...

  • Trailer Keeps Blowing Fuses on Tow Vehicle

Make sure that the connector is free of any debris or corrosion. Clean it anything out that might be there and apply Dielectric Grease # 11755 in the connector to help keep it clean and in proper working order. To check the wiring you will want to look for any places where the wire has been bent, damaged, corroded, or has exposed...

  • Grease Recommendation for Converting Oilbath to Grease Hubs
  • LMX Red grease is the highest quality grease rated for wheel bearing use. I would recommend going with that. For that you would want part # L10321. You have found the biggest drawback to oilbath hubs, if a seal goes out on a grease hub you can most likely make it home and replace it and you will be fine. With oilbath, but the time you realize the seal went out you've done damage to the hub or drum. We don't carry brake fluid, but your local auto parts store should be able to help...
