Just got back from quick break
Inflated tyres from 45 to 55 psi on caravan
Got to site , motor mover worked but made awful noise
Could noise be related to top up of tyres ?
And thank you

The way to find out if it's the rollers that is causing the sqeal is to just spin the rollers via the remote control (without any engagement on the tyres) and listen for any grinding or sqealing noise. If there is no evidence of any such noise then it could just be damp related within the brake shoes inside the caravan wheels.

The bearings only cost a couple of ponds from a local bearing supplier. The mover manufacturer should be able to supply them if you contact them. As other forum members have said check the rollers without engaging the wheels, I thought at first I had some gravel on the tyres before finding out the bearings had worn.
