Oil filled hubs

The oil filled hubs on the front wheels of my Berk, have a "minimum" fill level, which is half way up the hub.

How "full" can they be?

I would think all the way to the top since there is no full mark.

1) before every trip
2) 80w90 or equivalent
3) little plug in middle of cap or if not available there's a plug on the side of the cap, plug should be close to the top to fill.

My Chassis mechanic said to NOT replace with synthetic if there was not already Synthetic in there. You'll need to ask FRCC what they used at the factory, but likely is was synthetic

My guy says that synthetic and regular oil do not work and play well together in the wheel hubs.

Yes. You have to remove the hubcaps to check/change the oil. This is one of the MAJOR (read don't ignore) maintenance items as specified by FL.
