If it was me I wouldn't repack those wheel bearings until around 70,000-80,000 miles or even 100,000 miles. I never do it by time but thats your decision. It appears that Monaco does everything early. Dana Spicer state that the wheel bearings using grease interval for OTR trucks in 120,000 miles and vocational is 60,000 mile intervals. See page 39 on attached PDF on the front axle

We just had ours repacked in Louisiana at a truck repair place. We figured they would be more into "chassis type" stuff. Most MH Dealers are just that - they are good for dealing with MH issues - not so much with axles, bearings, grease, brakes, etc.
Anyway, it was first time on it with 90,000+. I watched the entire process and the old grease/bearings seemed fine, but repacked them anyway.
Recommend new seals as well.
Our total cost was a little over $300 for the fronts - that included new seals.
Discussed the conversion with the truck stop owner - he said best to stick with whatever came with it. Odds are, there is a good reason. Leaking oil would make your front brakes useless - and start a fire while trying to stop!!
We like grease!!
