The E-Z Lube option was designed specifically for the marine application where the axles are constantly being immersed in water. This feature provides a convenient method for purging the water from the hub cavity without having to pull the hub every time. The hubs should be removed every 12 months or 12,000 miles to inspect the bearings and it is imperative to replace the seal at this time to assure that the grease does not leak out the back onto the brake linings rendering the brakes non-functional.

per dexter off their website...
the feature is ithe axle is it not?
As I stated the axles on the trailers with the electric brake option should not be used for water applications. I understand when companies like Dexter develop these for Marine units I am glad they decided to use these for this application not arguing with you just saying they can and will use them for other systems because they work if they are lubricated like they are supposed to then they will work fine. but if you grease them improperly then they will cause issues. I always take mine apart when I check them for wear etc. But you can grease them by lifting wheel off the ground and slowly roll the wheel as you slowly pump grease into them and you shouldn't blow out the rear seal. Most people just try to pump grease into them and with a hand held grease gun you can achieve about 10,000 pounds of pressure with that much yes you will blow any seal out.

ok, so I get it. folks are running USA made seals and bearing sets, filling the hubs with no seal blowouts. Is anyone running beyond the 12,000 mile service interval with success?

I was hoping someone would post up they were able to get extended range between service intervals with this modified plan but no one has. Having had customers achieving 4 years and 16000 miles, though not advised, on a traditional bearing pack, I personally dont feel the extra effort is worth it. I can see where you'll never have to worry about a dry bearing though and that has to be reassuring.

So after tearing mine apart, the outer bearing set is a Timken set 4, (L44649 & L44610)Cup & Cone Set NOT the Timken set 6. So, the sheet put out by Turbs does NOT apply to my trailer and I have doubts if it applies to Glenn's.

Picture shows the good quality of the cone. Note the concentricity of the roller cage. Thank you NO as to them being quality.
