Wheel bearings

How many out there remove, clean and repack their bearings every year even if they put very little or no miles on their a frames. Even with ultra lube hubs the manufacturer states this is to be done at least every year or 12,000 miles. What is the correct torque for the aluminum wheels on our campers. I torque to 95 ft. lbs. but cannot find the spec in any of my a frames manuals. Alko just states to torque to wheel manufacturers spec. Thanks in advance!

I haven't done it yet.

Yearly, I add grease and spin the wheel and listen for noise and feel for wobble, etc.

Anyone with problems?

In my Aframe there is a sticker just inside the door, I think just to the left side when your inside that tells the air pressure to maintain. I don't remember off-hand what it is but 95 sounds about right
