Reminds me of buying a used trailer from a dealer some years ago and paying extra to have the bearings inspected and repacked so I would be confident all was well.
A year later, I decided to pull the wheels and repack them and found that in every wheel the grease was hard and caked and the rollers were starting to spall off little bits of metal!
On the one hand I was happy to catch things (just) in time, but on the other hand it lowered my faith in humanity a bit. I'm sure those bearings had never been serviced since the trailer was new.
You'd think I would have learned my lesson, but more recently when we bought our present Airstream from an Airstream dealer (no longer in business I don't believe) I again paid extra to have the bearings repacked before picking up the tariler.
When I picked it up and reviewed the various invoices, there was one for the repack, but no charge for new grease seals.
When I questioned this I was told "We didn't need to change them."
Makes me suspicious!
I generally prefer to do my own repacks!
