How often to repack bearings?

2012 X20E - we go on about 6 trips a year all 2 hours max or under. How often should I have the bearings repacked? Every year? Mileage? Thanks guys!

We tow 10,000 to 15,000 miles a year, typically repack bearing every two years

We do the same. Typically take it into our local tire store, Les Schwab, and have them rotate and balance tires each year and perform an axle alignment & wheel bearing pack every two years. We probably only tow 6-8K per year.

So far in 2 years we have only camped locally [within 100 miles] and only put around 800 miles on our trailer. At the end of this season, I will repack them myself. Most trailers these days have the bearing quick lube, the thing to watch out here is too much grease infused can blow out the rear seals in a hurry.

Same here
Pack and balance every 2 years
Have the tire guy repack when he balances
Never thought about an axel alignment...Hmmm

Every other year... and balance them tires... even though you dont feel the vibration the RV will and that will cause parts to loosen and fail..
