More boating questions

Is a sump pump and a bilge pump the same ? Is a 'blower' different?
finally,one of the wheels on my trailer seems to have some play
(bearing). How do i adust it with a 'bearing buddy' on it.
The boat is a 1988 four winns 160 horizon(?)sterndrive.
thanks

A sump pump is in your house - a bilge pump is in your boat. A blower is the fan that clears gas fumes from your engine compartment. To adjust your wheel bearings with a "buddy bearing" - remove the buddy bearing - and tighten/loosen your bearing cap nut.

Like to just add

If you ran it at all this way and have had the trailer in the water or not.
Get all new bearings for the trailer now so you dont end up on the side of the road some place.
