My Nitro Z8 trailer came with vortex hubs. About a year ago I had two leaking and while I was in DFW, I had the Tracker Marine shop South of Fort Worth replace the caps (if I remember correctly that's what they did). Now, one of the two that wasn't replaced is leaking.

I want to replace the other two but the closest tracker marine shop is 3 hours away. Is this something I can order online and do myself? I have never touched a hub besides during a good wash. Any insight would be great. Thanks guys!

Yes you can do. Fine sand the spindle area where the seal contacts. Get complete hubs for about 70.00 each. Just search vortex.
