70 degrees in Little Rock today and ready to go to the lake. However, i need to repack the wheel bearings on my trailer. I normally use Penzoil Marine. any suggest for better / cheaper stuff?

Stick with the Pennzoil Marine.

Either option will get the job done. Just don't buy the cheap stuff.

Just the fact that you are doing it is good. The grease displaces water, which is the end all to metal on metal.

No question that the cheap grease is better than nothing. The better grease is only a couple bucks more than the cheap stuff and is one of the places I don't economize. Losing a wheel bearing on the road isn't that much fun. :rolleyes:

Grease compatibility is an issue when changing grease. If you decide to go away from the Pennziol Marine, be sure and get all the existing grease out of the bearings.

Google "grease compatibility" and get yourself really confused.

Two greases that don't play well together can ball up like clay and lead to bearing failure in short order. I learned this the hard way when I thought I was adding a "better" grease.

I will not be changing brands of grease any time soon.
