Axle Identification

I have a 2016 HW276 and was wondering how to identify what type of axle bearings I have; ez lube or never lube. I called Forest River and was told to look for a sticker but I do not have one. Headed Mt. Rushmore next week and want to make sure the camper is ready to go.

Nev-r-lube would be rare on a small travel trailer. In any case Nev-r-lube axle typically have a metal cap on the end while ez-lube have a rubber plug.

Mine has a solid metal cap. Not sure if I should try to pry it off.

Nev-R-Lube axles should have a spindle cap that has Nev R Lube embossed in them.

Yours are most likely plain. I'd go ahead and pry them off and take a look.
