    I use it on all zerks. Resistance to water, whats not to like?

    If I am mistaken for using it on all my grease applications someone let me know!

    I have been using blue marine grease on all my ujoints and wheelbearings for over 10years now and I have never had a problem with it.

    I've been told not to use marine grease on wheelbearings with disc brakes due to the heat issues, but I have no experience (good, bad, or otherwise) to back this up...

    I was going to say that.....

    Trailer and marine grease is NOT for disc brake wheel bearings or hi temp.

    I'd suggest using disc brake wheel bearing grease like you're supposed to.

    All grease has good water washout resistance.
