Replace wheel seals?

I've neglected to do any sort of bearing maintenance since we bought our TT new three years ago. I doubt I have 3000 miles on the trailer but plan to pull the hub's to inspect the bearings, skip the EZ Lube system and hand pack them. Should grease seals be replaced or do most people reuse them? Any other hub parts on a Dexter axle that need to be replaced during a service?

It's cheap insurance. I would replace them.

When I do any trailer maintenance related to bearings I always replace the seals. As Norty said its simply cheap insurance.

Not worth the couple of dollars you will save by not replacing them.. seals are considered a consumable and should be replaced every time you disturb them..
