Lubing Master Tube under Flagstaff Popup

Going to grease up the wheel bearings with some Royal Purple NLGI No. 2 High Performance Multi-Purpose Synthetic Ultra Performance Grease and was wondering is this grease ok for the three lube spots on the master tube under the trailer for the lift mechanism?

Personally, I can see no reason not to use this grease, but this will be my first time so who knows.

Also, has anyone ever lubed this master tube? The book says it has three zerk fittings, front, bottom and top, so I'm wondering about the top fitting. Does it require a 90 degree adapter on the grease gun hose, or is it reachable with a standard straight fitting?

Thanks...

The zirk on top already has a 90 on it.


Not to hijack thread or anything- has anyone else with a HW277 or HW276 found three zirks? I can only find 2.

I have a 2008 flagstaff 206 pu, and I greased the master tube today, and only found 2 zerks. I had seen on a forum somewhere that there was only 2, so I was not really looking for 3. Will doublecheck tomorrow. BTW, how much grease does it take for this job? I put almost a whole new tube of grease into those 2 zerks, and never saw any grease oozing at anywhere.
