Liqua-Lube: Protection for the Long Haul
by Keith Kavajecz & Gary Parsons

"With the Liqua-Lube Complete Hub Lubrication System, I put on over 12,000 in less than four months last sesaon without ever having to do anything to my trailer's hubs. The system works great!" Keith Kavajecz

"We've field tested the Liqua-Lube Complete Hub Lubrication System for the past four years. That amounts to more abuse than the average fisherman dishes out in a lifetime. Thousands of miles of travel, countless boat launchings and roads that aren't really roads, there's just no trees. The Liqua-Lube System stood up to our punishment." Gary Parsons

How many miles a year would you say you put on your boat trailer? Traveling around the country fishing tournaments, we put on quite a few. That's why we have learned not to take our boat trailers for granted. It's onething to have a great walleye boat (or any boat for that matter), but if you can't get it to the lake...well you get the idea.

No doubt, one of the most important aspects of any trailer, are the wheel bearings. A boat trailer's bearings worst enemies are dirt and water, and since many of us have to travel on unpaved roads to get to our favorite fishing hole, and then dunk the trailer everytime we load and unload the boat, our trailer's bearing are particularly vunerable.

In the past, we used bearing protectors that relied on grease for lubrication and protection. The problem was that, although these were fairly reliable, the grease often did not stay on the bearings where it was needed, allowing dirt and water to penetrate the hub and damage the bearing. Besides, they were messy, it was a chore to have the bearings repacked every season, and grease is not what you would call an "environmentally friendly" substance.

A Wisconsin company, Liqua-Lube of Lake Mills, Wisconsin, has taken wheel bearing protection to a new level. The Liqua-Lube Complete Hub Lubrication System does not use grease. Instead, it uses a 100% synthetic base, biodegradable LIQUID. Because the Liqua-Lube hub creates a controlled atmosphere for the liquid allowing the Liqua-Lube lubrication to stay on the bearings. The Liqua- Lube lubricant will actually absorb up to 30% of it's own volume in water, literally making more lubricant and ensuring there will be no damage to the bearings from water penetration.

The Liqua-Lube system incorporates high quality REDICOTE, double lip, spring loaded seals and burnished, stainless steel sleeves to create a virtually leak-proof fit. The clear hubs of the Liqua-Lube system let you know at a glance when you need to add lubricant to the bearings. And its easy to do. Just remove the cap plug on the Liqua-Lube Hub, and pour in a little more lubricant from the convinient Liqua- Lube squeeze bottle. Changing lubricant at the end of the season is just as easy, and because the Liqua-Lube lubricant is biodegradable, it's disposable.

The Liqua-Lube system was developed by 23 year Marine Industry veteran Ken Persson, owner of the K-DEE Launcher trailer company. Ken knows trailers.

We have field tested the Liqua-Lube Complete Hub Lubrication System for the past four years. That amounts to more use and abuse on a boat trailer than the average fisherman dishes out in a lifetime. Thousands of miles of travel, countless boat launchings and roads that aren't really roads, there's just no trees. The Liqua-Lube System stood up to our punishment. There's no doubt Liqua-Lube will work for you.
