Angry Problem with brake/bearings

I just got back from our first trip in our 2011 Windjammer. I noticed before we left that there was some grime on one of the wheels. Upon checking, I noticed that the bearing cover had come loose and slung grease on the wheel. I put put the cap back on, added some grease and off we went. I noticed the grease on the wheel again. I added grease before we headed back. We noticed a grinding noise as we got closer to home. It sounds like the brake pad or something is grinding on the wheel with the grease that's leaking. I suspect that something's rubbing and heating up the grease causing it to leak, but not sure what to check. Thanks

things just don't come loose. Get it back to the dealer to fix. I suspect a bearing failure.

Get your unit to a dealer to check it out. You do not want failure going down the road.
