Doing a full change of grease twice on my axles I have only used 2 tubes total.

That may be a seal problem/ seal surface or the hole was drilled out of spec.
Also the seal could have been installed incorrectly. Check after you redo for seal leak after a few miles. I use the drilled axle on boat trailers in saltwater, greatest thing since slice bread. But the seal is the critical area. If I drive the seal too deep on one hub it will leak because the seal lip is on the edge of the hole. "Out of Spec". Look for why it leaks when you redo. Good luck!

I get that and makes sense. When I handed packed my old TT surely used less. I feel that the EZ Lube uses more because it has much more wasted space. Of course the manual says little to nothing. I did check the one seal of the wheel that seemed to take more and all is good. Hated taking everything apart but peace of mind...

The only thing you could do is take it all apart and clean. Just be looking to be sure the grease does not leak after redo. If the seal area leaks it may allow grease to get out. They use a double lip seal on the boat trailer stuff and probably on the rv stuff. Never been into mine. From my experience with saltwater I just check temperature and go. I did find out years ago about the double seal the hard way. Not all seals are the same, though they may fit.
Sometime there may be a burr on the drilled hole but do not chamfer it.
