How Often Do My Trailer Axles Need Servicing?

Servicing your trailer axles should be done, on average, about once every six months or every 5000 miles. If you stress and strain your axles a ton, it might be more often. In theory, with seldom use and excellent preservation and care, you might discover they last a little longer. But edge on the safe side with all trailer maintenance. Safety isn’t where you save.
