What Rich said. You won't find many fans of Bearing Buddies on most RV forums. The general rule is what Rich said.

They're a way to grease your wheel bearings without taking them apart. You insert the grease though a grease fitting until it starts to ooze out. They were developed for trailers whose axles regularly go underwater like boat trailers. These need more frequent bearing lubrication replacement.

The biggest disadvantage of them is that you don't inspect your bearings for wear. And, you may have dirt inside that is not cleaned out.

Looks like a really good unit. Welcome from Chattanooga and Cartersville.

Moonstruck,
My daughter lives in Cartersville! Small world. Lives in Cass Station, that's one reason for our liking the Lake camping. Just adding a note.
