At 2X a year, you are in the 99.999th. percentile AFA good maintenance goes! At once a year, even, you will never have a problem- ever. You'll see any problem before it gets to the "terminal" stage. And good job.
Ray, X2 on the trailer bearings! I've never owned a boat trailer, but while coming back from the coast, a buddy and I had people frantically waving at us, turns out the trailer bearing had gone out from all the dunkings while putting in/taking out, and the wheel was trailing smoke- BAD.
We unhooked the trailer. I stayed w/the boat and trailer, he rode back and got the wherewithal to fix it. Made for a L O N G day.
Moral of the story: Preventative maintenance makes all the difference.
