I had my bearings repacked prior to leaving for Alaska; 14,000 miles later we are home. I had them repacked again as soon as scheduling permitted The technician in Whitehorse, YT. showed me the blown seal on my E-Z lube axles; I had tried to pump bearing grease in while we were on the road in YT, Canada. I used the Dexter procedure, but still blew grease past the seals and consequently onto the brake shoes.
That was the first/last time for that. I'll stay with the recommended remove, inspect, repack every 12,000 miles or 12 months. Those greasy brakes caused me to burn up the truck brakes on the curvy 11 mile, 8% downgrade approaching Skagway, AK. I was going to repack them myself in Skagway but there are NO vehicle repair facilities or parts there.
