    What should I do to prepare my trailer for winter so I can have a trouble free time with it next season? BTW it's just a smaller 6 by 8 single axle trailer. Thanks

    Lube all of the moving parts, inspect and repack wheel barrings, scrape and remove any rust spots then cover with touch up paint. That is about all I can think of right now.

    Winterizing a trailer here consists of putting as much "warm season" equipment as I can on the trailer and then parking it in the back of the shed.

    If you want to, WD-40 wherever you feel like it would benefit. Other than that, nothing.
