Repacking wheel bearings

1976 Holiday Rambler Free Spirit 21'
Is it hard to repack the wheel bearing? What it the torque when I replace the drums back on? How can I check to make sure the brake magnets are ok?

Here is a good you tube video that describes packing a trailer wheel bearing with grease.

It is not hard, just kind of messy.

I picked up a tool that looks like 2 funnels with a grease fitting on top. you place the bearing in between then pump it full of grease.
Way better then packing it with your palms.
I bought it at a Napa auto parts.
I was googling to try and find you a picture of what it looks like and i came across this thread. . .
