Need help identifying axle / bearing type

2005 Forest River Flagstaff 228

I thought I had Dexter EZ lube bearings on my PUP but the pics and photos I've seen don't match up with the pic of mine below.

Can anyone confirm I have EZ lubes or ?????????????

I need to check / lube the bearings. Any words of wisdom is appreciated.

Thanks in advance, DJ

Though it doesn't look like easy access, you will have to remove tire and center cap. Then take the dust cover off spindle. If you see a zerc then you have your answer, if not, most of the hard work done and take the cotter key, nut off and disassemble, clean and repack. Helpful, ain't I?

Thanks Ida Ratherbe Camping. Followed your advice and took the wheels off...NOT EZ lube bearings. Just a good ol' cotter key and nut. All good now...let's go camping!
