Many of the people that have problems have used a power grease gun... dont do that it puts too much stress on the rear seal... some are just plain UNLUCKY and had a defective seal...

I do know the cost of grease getting into everything. It cost us $1,100 to have everything replaced that had grease on it on our new trailer. Jayco did reimburse us something like 4 months later. After the warranty period it is all on the owner. After having the EZ lube axles on two trailers now and having grease getting past the seal on the first trailer (caught it before it got into the brakes) and then having three out of four wheels full of grease I now have a motto. EZ Lube my a$$.

This is exactly my point and why now I will not be using it on my trailer. I also have a 3000lb trailer with out brakes w/EZ Lube and I still won't bother with the EZ Lube. proper maintenance is the only way to go.

EZ LUBE is a feature of Dexter axles. All it really does is generate more sales for Dexter and its dealers. If my trailer did not have the EZ Lube system all I would have needed to do was repack my bearings. Instead I had to replace all my brakes. More sales for Dexter - of course they're gonna put it on every axle they sell.
