Wheel Bearing Service Interval

What's a good wheel bearing service interval? We purchased a new
2015 Jayco 18 S-RB this summer and I'm curious when I should take a look at the wheel bearings. What type of grease do y'all recommend - synthetic or standard wheel bearing grease?

I spoke to the people at Dexter Axle the other day and they said wheel bearings should be cleaned and repacked annually and brakes inspected at the same time.They said to make sure to use a bearing grease that can withstand the heat involved.

Just bought my TT new this year. I'm planning on packing my bearings and adjusting the brakes this spring before my first camp. There are a lot of great videos on YouTube that show the whole process.

I repack my bearings and inspect/adjust the brakes every two years, or every 10,000 miles..... which ever comes first.

The Dexter web site has quite a bit of information available.
