How do you determine what size bearing buddy fits your trailer?
Mine fell off and Really want to replace it before driving it somewhere.

I don't believe there's but a couple of sizes. I picked up my last set from WalMart. Something more important that I learned is that they don't "fall off" without a reason. Jack that baby up and check for wheel play in the bearings and uneven tire wear. Just a tiny bit of play in the wheel bearing creates a high speed oscillating that shakes the bearing buddy off.

Thanks for the help I got my measurement and will get the bearing buddy tomorrow.

Jim,
It fell of on my way home from your house. It was the one I put on and I may not have gotten it all the way on.
