We've had several boat trailers over the years and always ran bearing buddies dust caps whils pumps grease inward and keeps the hub pressurized durring water submersion. Always used marine grade grease when I services the trailer bearings each year. I use the same grease on my TT and hit the EX lube fittings a little bit before a long trip.

I experienced the same thing. All brakes contaminated by axle grease and I never put a grease gun on them in 1 1/2 years since picking it up new. My local dealer got the ok to replace them under warranty by Jayco/ Dexter.
