Maintance prob depends on how much you travel.

I trailer about 3-5k mi per year and the idea of working on the side of the highway or losing a day at the lake due to bearing issues is unacceptable.

I pull the bearing buddies every year to inspect for water intrusion (repack if found) and repack every 2yrs regardless.

As mentioned, brake fluid is hydroscopic. It will pickup water and rust your brake system from the inside out.
Get a kit like this - http://www.harborfreight.com/brake-f...der-92924.html

On repack years, suck out fluid from resivior, add new then bleed brakes. It is a super easy one man job, especially with boat unloaded.

Spray tires with protectant twice a year, just like you would a car.
