Unfortunately I was in mountainous territory at the time. What happened was the grease had pushed through the hub's grease seals and gotten inside the brake drum. Luckily our truck had enough braking power to keep us from flying on the curves. Some $250 later a repair shop in Alaska fixed the problem.
Just put a squeeze or two in your hub (assuming you're using a manual grease gun). Check your owners manual for the hubs to find the kind of grease to use--very important.
D-mo's comment made me remember to caution you to have enough air in your tires. My 13" tires want 65 pounds but yours may be different. There should be a sticker on the side of your unit giving tire pressure info.
Had the RV service guy here check the grease for me today, said it was great, but, I would have had to have taken the wheels off to grease them.....I woulda thought just a fitting to grease once i popped the cap, also.

We rigged up "rabbit ears" and some places it worked and other places it did not. We had along taken some movies to "zone out" on before bedtime, just in case the antenna didn't work.

Staying at campgrounds with cable TV hookup is another choice...or, if all else fails, you can read a book

Your on board CD/radio should provide local and some National news.

Good tips Deb, thanks ! Picked up a Rayzar antenna for the tv today, picked up quite a few boston and providence and boston channels from my driveway and i am 50-60 miles away from those cites.

I hope it's nothing serious, just a quick alignment perhaps, then home to hitch up.
I'm a bit envious. Be sure to update us every chance you get.
