Wheel Bearings

We bought a 2014 Palomino Puma this past February. How do I know if I have buddy bearings? What type of maintenance should I perform on my wheel bearings? So far e have only taken out four times for about 300 total miles.

Thanks,

Randy

I answered your post on another thread. My 30 ft, 2010 Puma has bearing protectors.

Did you ever find out if you have bearing protectors or not? Mine has what I believe are Dexter EZ-lube.

If it has them, they will have a black rubber cap covering them. At first glance, its easy to miss.

Took the trailer out for the weekend. I did some checking and I do have buddy bearings on my TT.

You might have ez lube or similar, but very doubtful they are Buddy Brgs.
