Sorry to be repetitive but I have 2006 trailer and have a few questions: 1) Where is sight glass? 2)Is it required to take the wheel off to add the oil and where do you add it and 3) how difficult is it to do with the boat on the trailer?

Thanks!!!!!!!

The sight glass is on the end of the hub in the center of the wheel. Yes, remove the wheel to find the fill screw on the hub and just jack up each wheel under the axle with a floor, bottle jack to service.

It should look something like this, less the water in the oil. This picture is for the location of the sight glass only and for no other purpose.

It will only drain if the screw/plug hole is turned to the bottom side, but, in doing all this, you need to determine why/where the water is entering the hub and contaminating the oil, either through the site glass/hub cover or a damages rear seal.

Yours should be similar to this pdf link, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/mc2009/images/attach/pdf.gif Trailer Buddy GOLD Axle Maintenance.pdf (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/attachment.php?attachmentid=48249&d=1244596379)

As far as the Yukon jack, who knows, but you can get one here, http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200304825_20030482, for $9+tax and keep it in the Yukon, rather than tearing out the Yukon jack out.
