Bearings and Grease

Just bought a new 29 foot trailer and wanted to check bearings for grease pulled the rubber caps out of the wheel cap and have the grease fitting so I gave each one 5 or 6 pumps from the grease gun but can't see any grease around castle nut yet ? Don't have the Super Lube Hubs just a fitting in the center should I be seeing some grease between rubber cap and
castle nut when I pump the gun a few times ?

You have the eaze lube. It can take up to 1/2 tube of grease to fill when new. Keep pumping slowly while turning wheel by hand and grease should come out. It needs to fill the void between the two bearings.

It's very deceiving for sure. I do mine at the beginning of each camping season along with the brake adjustments. Yesterday each hub took between 30 & 32 pumps before I saw the old grease coming out.
