Repacking Wheel bearings

I hope a few folks might be able to provide some information to my questions? I took my travel trailer (2013 26BH) on a 4400 mile trip this summer. With this trip I now have close 6K miles on the TT.

1. When should I repack the wheel bearings? Should I do it now or wait till the summer is over and do it prior to storing it for the real short winter we have here in San Antonio?

2. I still have about a year left on the two year warranty. If I repack the bearings, will I void any part of my warranty?

Thanks

We repack bearings each spring with annual mileage of 7 to 9k
Repacking bearings should not void your warranty

Many have them repacked or checked every other season. It should enhance you warranty when you do routine maintenance.

I repack the bearings and check/adjust the brakes every 10,000 miles or every two years, whatever comes first.

We only tow around 3000 to 4000 miles a year. We repack bearings every 4 to 5 years. I never use the EZ lube feature.
