Lippert 4400lb Axles - Anyone have an owner's manual?

My 2016 Dutchmen Aerolite 298RESL trailer came with no literature on the axles. I crawled under the trailer to see what I had. I went to the Lippert site. I didn't see any owner manual for 4400lb axles on the internet.

From what I can see on the id tag they are 4400lb with a part number 456403.

I'm going to ping the dealer I purchased from. I just wanted to see what comes up here.

I'm looking for the interval and amount to grease the ez lube point.

At how many miles does this group pull their bearing and repack?

I did find this:

Lippert Axles

Our Lippert axles lost their crown after only 4 trips on highway roads and full hook-up rv stations. Our axles were rated 3500 lbs for a 282BH. Happened twice. Only the second time the tire blew frame bent. Make sure your axles will support the weight. Our independent inspection by one of the best trailer builders in the city noted 3500 lbs is not enough for 7000 lbs of trailer. We did not have any material on the axles or the slides.

I wouldn't use the easy lube feature. There is a pretty likely chance that at least one of the grease seals are not up to the task and you will wind up lubing your brake shoes as much as the bearings. At least that is what I found from my own experience. It sucks to have to overhaul the brakes on an almost new trailer.
