Bearing grease

Just bought a 2010 XLR 23fbv toy hauler and am wondering if anyone knows what kind of grease the factory used in the bearings. I'd like to use the buddy bearimgs and give them a shot of grease but don't want to use a grease that might not be compatible with the grease in them now. It's black and probably moly based but just want to make sure.

I have a Windjammer with Dexter axles. When I went to the Dexter site I downloaded information on my axles including compatible grease recommended by the manufacturer.

Any EP-2 grease will work just fine. I have never in 40 years as a mechanic seen any incompatability issues among greases.

Get some Lukas Red #2 has the same specks as dexter. Much better then what the factory puts in. Lukas if I remember right has a drop point of 460 degrees. I just changed mine out, a mess but now I don't have to worry. As long as the speck is the same brand means nothing, I just like Lukas Red. and the drop point is higher, a plus for you.
