Wheel bearings

How often should your wheel bearings be greased and/or repacked?

Just my suggestion, once per year or 5000 miles. Check brakes and repack bearings.

Typically once per year, unless you are full timing and towing long distances. Once per year is assuming typical weekend/couple weeks/holiday warrior use.

After the first year change out the china junk bearings and races for Timken (U.S.A made) and repack every 5K with new seals...

Per Dexter axle - 12mos or 12,000 miles which is exactly what the cars before encapsulated bearings took over about 20 years ago. The first inspection and repack should be after you take possession as there have been way too many early failures from lack of grease or poor quality parts.

My recommendation is tear them apart & hand pack annually. By doing this you can inspect all bearing related parts, brakes & suspension components & good to travel for another season.
DO NOT use the easy lube zerks, unless you are 110% confident in the grease seals, too many contaminated brakes from cheap or worn seals resulting in NO trailer brakes.
