While surfing the web I found - http://www.bearingbuddy.com/model.html. Notice the text

Our 2080T (threaded model 2080) will fit the Reliable oil bath unit that is on many of the EZ Loader trailers. on that page.

From the measurements I've taken on the threaded portion of my hub and the Oil Bath Cap I believe this would be the correct replacement.

I thought others might be interested in this so hence the post.

For me, I'm going to stick with the oil bath for a bit longer as I just did my annual inspection of the hubs/spindles/bearings/seals and dealing with the oil over grease is far easier.

If anyone has used this product, it would be good if you can post your experience.

Cheers!

Every boat trailer I have had before the Mastercraft had grease packed bearings and in my opinion, the bearing buddy is a must. I personally like the oil bath system and have experienced no problems. I change the oil every year during winterization.
