My experience is that if the bearing really explodes, you need to replace the race as well. That requires a hammer and punch and then you need to reseat the new race. Not a side of the road job. Service the bearings ahead of time. Inspect for burnt or flaking appearance. New grease, clean Arbor, new oil seals. If you're not feeling heat now and there's no noise or movement, you're most likely good. I completely service my bearings every other year.
Matt, another trailer shop a freind has used and says is very good and reasonable is Randall's VIP trailer service over their in the Mesa area.
Buy a spare hub with the bearings already in it. That way, instead of fiddling around with bearings and lots of tools on the side of the road, you simply remove the castle nut from the spindle, pull the old hub off, put the new hub on, tighten the castle nut to approximately 50 foot lbs, back the nut off 1/4 turn, cotter pin back in and you are good to go.
