You will first have to determine which type bearings you have on the axles: if you have a hub cover, take it off and look at the hub--if there is a rubber cover on the hub, you probably have the greasable EZ Lubes. Just get a grease gun and force grease into the hub (slowly, don't pump fast) until you see some return grease. If you have the NevRLube axles, there won't be a grease zerk. If you have regular bearings, then there will just be a normal axle nut and you will have to take each hub off and repack the bearings manually. Check you owners manual--should have some reference to the bearing type.

Hello bluezebra, and welcome to the extended irv2.com family! Since Dexter, Alco-Kober and less known axle manufacturers all recommend annual removal, cleaning and inspection of wheel bearings (except sealed) I doubt I'll ever use my EZ-lube axle zerk fittings, why would I when they must be removed and cleaned prior to annual inspection.That is my opinion though.
