Greasing bearings

I have a 2010 297bhs. How often do you guys pull the hubs off and grease the bearings? I do about 6 trips a year about 2800 miles

I use the EZ lube fittings every year at start of season.. Manually pull and repack bearings and inspect every 5000-6000km's

Should be done annually. In practice I do it every other year, mostly because I keep getting away with it. Someday that may bite me in the a$$ though.

Nice little guide here (note that the pictures are in reverse order so start at the last one)

For the travel trailer, I inspect/grease annually and re-pack every other year. It's an easy, inexpensive job, and not an unpleasant way to spend a Sat afternoon. We trailer 3k-4k miles/year. I also monitor hub temps at each fuel/rest stop when I do my "rig walkaround".

I grease mine once a year just prior to the first trip of the season. Been doing that, and only that, for 3 campers for over 12 years with no other problems. Some people I think go overboard by repacking; unless it is "heavily" traveled in salt and water, I don't see the need. Repacking trailer bearings are more for boat trailers being exposed to submersion or heavy loaded(usually overloaded) long haul trailers usually not pertaining to campers IMO.
