Axles on 2017 Coachmen Apex 239

Bought this camper new, but the dealer didn't include any literature on the axles. Can I presume they are Dexters? Also, as there are zerk fittings on the ends of the axles, can I assume that these are EZ Lube? I can attach a picture of the hub if it helps. Thx.

Look on the axle tube for a label. It should have the information you need.

The axle tag provides the axle maximum load. It may not be official unless it matches the vehicle certified GAWRs listed on the vehicle certification label.

Think the OP was wondering who the manufacturer of the axles were.

The hub, if original, should have the name on them. All my hub drums are stamped Dexter. EZ lube is Dexters name for it, but Lippert has the same system to pump new grease in. FWIW, if you are looking to lube the hubs, I would pull them all and clean/ inspect/ pack if you have never done so. First time I did so on my trailer I found a galled bearing. Less than 3000 miles.
