My old trailer was like that.

Break lugs loose. Jack up. Remove lugs & wheel. Then start disassembling the hub.

Like the new system better. Jack up. Remove rubber plug. Grease while turning. Wipe. Reinstall rubber plug. Lower jack. Next wheel!

Do all 4 in 1/10th the time it used to take to do 2. And much less grease on the nitrile gloves.

Thank you to all who posted in this thread. It gave me the confidence to grease my bearings on our '14 17z and save a few bucks plus I adjusted the brakes while at it. It currently has about 1650 miles on it. I took the advice to pump the grease slowly while spinning the wheel and it worked fine. It did take about an entire tube to do both axles until I started to see new Red grease oozing out.

Nice to hear.

Good luck on your next 1650 miles and many, many more!
