Not so sure about that ???
If it were me I would probably pull the wheels and repack the bearings !!!
And check the brakes,,, Just to be sure !!!

Bearing Buddies are the last thing I'd use even when normally greasing my wheel bearings. I used them 1 time and followed the defined process to the letter. Yes, jacked each wheel up and slowly turned while carefully/slowly squeezing grease into the zerk. 2 wheels didn't have grease come out the front so figured I'd find grease all over the brakes and sure enough, when disassembled, greasy brakes. Now I'm back to my method of 30 years, pull wheels and hand pack each bearing!!!!!

Saw this happen to some people we know in N Fla a few years ago. They were not as luck as you. Rain came up so fast they had to get out of the house quick, not time to grab the camper. the water came about 5' up the side walls. Total loss. The insurance helped with the replacement cost.
