Wheel Bearings

Got my new 35ROK today and I'm brousing the manuals. In the Dexter axle book it says there are three different types of wheel bearings on their axles, standard, EZ Lube and Nev-R-Lube. What it doesn't say is what I have on mine. Anyone know what these new units have? Is the NevRLube any good? I like the idea of not having to lube those things if they work!

Do a search on them. I don't trust anything that doesn't require periodic maintenance or lubrication. My SBS (sealed bearing system) from Lippert was crap and would have failed by now if I didn't replace the axles, hubs and bearing assemblies.

I have the EZ lube on our Wildcat that has ALCO Axles. I do not use the EZ Lube because I blew out a rear seal back in 2007 by using the EZ Lube. The RV Tech at our dealer said pull the wheels and manually inspect bearing and pack the bearings.
