You can access the front wheel bearings by taking off the tire and
the nut on the hub. the rears are a little more difficult and you
need a special tool to pull off the rear hub. Tow it down to Dayton
and I will help you do it.

Thanks Doug! Tell me, how often should I be doing this?

Last week we replaced the inner wheel bearing. I broke it apart trying to remove it. The inner race was stuck but good to the spindle. I used my acetylene torch and heated it red hot. My daughter and I were able to pop it off with two pry bars. I was able to buy a bearing locally because it is common. I used a piece of one an 3/4 inch exhaust pipe as a driver to pound it on. Also to put the new front seal in I found the large cap from an oxygen tank is the same size as the seal. I used the cap as a seal driver to install the seal.
