What type of grease to use for wheel bearings ?

I didn't realize there were different types of grease.
Does anyone know what type I should use for my 2010 Flagstaff 625D ?

Thanks,

Bean

I always use Mobil 1 synthetic (red sticky). Bit more expensive but I feel better.

Here is something I found out the hard way about cheap grease. It melts and drips and runs out of the grease gun onto your clothes, shoes, floor and drive.

I used Lucas Red 'N' Tacky #2 on our Outback. Never had a problem. We haven't had the Rockwood long enough to deal with greasing the bearings yet, but given it has AL-KO axles, the same as the Outback, I will stick with the Red 'N' Tacky.

Another user of the Lucas Red "N" Tacky #2.

I had the square flange that the brake assembly attaches to break on a recent trip, allowing the brakes to rub against the drum, radiating the heat to the hub....that hub got too hot to touch. The Red 'N" Tacky grease still looks good. I didn't check the grease during the incident, but I saw no signs of any leak around the dust cap to drum connection or the rubber plug due to any thinning out of the grease. There might have been some thinning, as I did have to replace that brake assembly due to shoe grease saturation, but I believe that was mostly due to the rear seal getting so hot that it did not function properly because of the high heat. My trailer mechanic didn't see any problems with the bearings or races.
