Flagstaff Wheel Bearings

I own a 2013 Flagstaff V-Lite 30WRLS. The trailer is in storage and I will be taking it out shortly for our annual Fall excursion, so the owners manuals, etc. is in the unit at this time.

Three questions: (1) Are the brakes disc or drum? (2) What type of wheel bearing grease do you recommend? (3) When pumping in new grease, are these EZ Lube fittings where you pump in the new grease and purge the old out from the back - OR, are they the "bearing buddy" style where you pump in the new grease just until the ZERK plate starts to move?

Thanks for your advice.

Thank you for the advice. I did some checking in the interim. The #2 post confirmed what I had researched. I think I'm going to use the Lucas Red & Tacky #2 grease.

Check your manual on your ales for your bearings. It should give you a list of approved grease. It should give you a minimum drop temp for the grease as well

I used the Lucas Red n tacky #2 and it turned a little to a liquid residue and leaked all over my new brakes. Switched to kendal 427 super blu. No problems. Lucas Oil said the grease was old but I had just purchased it from the parts store.
