My rig came new with over greased hubs and I have heard about it happening to others also who had never put a grease fitting on the on the EZ Lube fitting.

Get it checked out and documented by your dealer. In my case they had to replace the brake assemblies on all 4 wheels. In my case, I did not see grease but noticed that the brakes were not as effective as they should have been.

Thanks, I hope they can get me in quickly and that it doesn't take 8 weeks... have you had good turn around on issues like this when you take it to a dealer?

In my case my dealer dealt with Jayco and Dexter. Dexter shipped 4 new brake assemblies and it took a couple of weeks to get it worked out and installed.

All warranty covered.

dont fret too much its just too much grease in the bearings.If you have greasable bearings take the rubber cap off of the bearing cap and scoop out some grease.The grease will get hot when you are brakinga lot causing it to liquify somewhat and thats when it will leak out the caps.mine were actually cracked so i replaced them and all is good.having said that,these trailers are made cheap and fast these days so it wouldnt be out of the norm to see something go bad after being put into service.if you can change a tire you can check your wheel bearings.its messy but its not that difficult.All the the instructions are on you tube.yours may be covered by warranty if its new.any one that owns these rigs should become familiar with certain maintainence issues as the alternative is spending alot of cash on R&M
