Per Al-Ko; they ship with Lithium Based NLGI #2 with a drop point over 450 degrees. Any
Lithium based NGLI #2 grease with a DP over 450 will mix just fine if you have Al-Ko axles. The Lippert axles also use Lithium Complex NLGI #2 with a DP of 446 degrees.
If you have a different manufacturer you will need to call.
NOTE that you STILL have to pull the hubs and do a visual cleaning and repack every year. It is easy (but messy) to do if you are handy. Once you repack by hand, you should still fill the hubs with a HAND
grease gun using the same grease.
