21fbrs wheel bearing question

Me and the the wife are taking our 21fbrs to Florida from Tennessee in a week. It's a 2013 and was wondering about the wheel bearing. Would yall repack them before the trip. We usually cam close to home with one trip to Maggie valley N.C. Last year. Also does anyone know if they come with grease fittings on the hubs. I have the aluminum wheel that have the chrome caps on it. Also I just glanced at it this afternoon do the center caps pop off or do I have to take the wheel off. Thanks in advance for your help!!!! We love our camper!!!!!

Chrome end cap comes off & there is a rubber plug in end of axel. Grease fitting under this plug.

Go slow with the grease gun and spin the wheel now and again.

At some point (end of your season) I would suggest you pull each hub to inspect the brakes, bearings and wires, you will need to replace the rear seal.
