Long time ghost first time posting. I have an 07 fourwinns factory trailer and I noticed the driver side wheel was leaking. There is a puddle of some sort of thin lube and the same lube leaking from the center hub. I know nothing about trailers and any help on how to fix it or what it is would be great.

It looks to me like you got some water in the bearing buddy. That center cap that is rubber pops out with a flat tip screw driver. Behind that there is a grease fitting. Find a grease gun and a tube of marine grade grease. Pump the fitting with grease until all the old sludge comes out and fresh grease starts coming out. You should grease these bad boys up a few times a season depending on how much you trailer the boat.

Before you pop the center cap back on, put a little bead of silicone around the rim, helps form a better seal.

looks like you should re-pack the bearings. bearing buddies aren't designed to pump until grease comes out. if you do, you'll have a nice mess to clean up and could blow-out a seal guaranteeing that you'll always have water in your bearings.

this site has alot of good info... http://www.championtrailers.com/techsup.html
