We have a 2012325CKCruiser Patriot 5th wheel. Wondering how often we need to have the wheel bearings repacked and how often do we add new grease????

Dealer checks mine once a year. Don't believe in using the EZ Lube feature. To easy to blow a seal and contaminate the brakes.

I think a lot depends on how many miles you put on the rig every year. I do mine (hand Pack) every year or two, depends on how many miles.
If you haven't done yours yet, I would recommend either doing it yourself, if you feel comfortable doing it, or have your dealer do it for you. That way you will know how things are inside those drums.

I pack mine every year but I think it is a little over kill. I would at least do them every two just for the peace of mind.

I do mine once a year - mine sits outside in the winter and the brake drums usually need a little cleaning (rust).

Thanks for everyones input.. Decided to have the wheel bearings done, brakes checked and tires rotated as we have put a little over 10,000 miles on our rig so far this year and we've only just begun...

I know I'm one of the few but I only repack mine when I do a brake job.Horse trailer,TT, utility trailer and motorcycle trailer and have never had a bearing failure. Maybe I'm just stupid and lucky but my truck and cars don't get repacked often not sure why a trailer should be any different. Not saying I'm right but, "Ya tend to do what you've always done."

We have zerks on each wheel and a ton of them on the suspension on the Redwood. Just a few pumps in each.
