I agree with Seann, 2 for sure and 3 pumps maybe.

unfortunately this system requires replacing the old grease just as if you were repacking the bearings manually. You never use old grease to repack wheel bearings. It is messy but necessary. You slowly rotate the wheel and slowly pump in new grease.

Other than into your brakes, where does this old grease go? I am really curious.

The grease flows through the bearings and back out the outside of the hub near the Zerk fitting.

When you pump grease into a EZ lube system, it goes in from behind the inner bearing and pushes out from the backside of the outer bearing. The book states that when you see fresh gease coming out from the outer bearing to stop. This system is far different than the old Bearing Buddies.

Here is a PFD on Dexter`s Easy Lube Axles procedure for greasing bearings. # 3 States "Pump grease into zerk. The old displaced grease will begin to flow back out the cap around the grease gun nozzle". So volwing1 makes a valid point.

You have to replace the grease with new. I would use a synthetic grease. Rotation of the wheel is highly recommended. Never jack your 365BHS up by the frame. For multiple reasons I would jack it by the axle. If grease gets on the brakes you need a new bearing because you have blown the seal. Grease will come back into the wheel hub, I highly recommend trying to wipe out much of it as possible. If you blow the seal you dealer should of been doing it for you in the first place.

4. To raise the RV, place the jack (hydraulic
or screw) under the main frame rail. It
must be just ahead of the front tire or just
behind the rear tire.
















Mocamper this is right out of the Jayco Owners manual

Ok, so that is how it is supposed to work. I had the same system on our Montana and the old grease found it's way into the brakes. There was nothing wrong with the bearings. The bearings were repacked by hand after the shop tech replaced the grease covered brake linings. The bearing pack and seal job was fairly inexpencive. The brakes were another expense.

So for me, two pumps every other year and then do it by hand. Our trailer is only pulled about 3000 miles a year.
