My 2012 189FDS has Lippert axles with the grease zerks to lube the wheel bearings. Just pop the plastic 'hub cap' off, and pry out the rubber weather plug.

ps, and manually adjusted brakes too

Thanks! I just went to grease the wheel bearings in my (new to me) trailer and was pleasantly surprised to find the zerks. I was wondering if I could just pry off the center cap of the (cap in the middle of the wheel) and not remove the wheel... It looks like it would break despite there being a screwdriver sized spot for what has to be that purpose.

I'll just be glad all I have to do is remove the wheel!

My 2010 FF does not require the tires to be removed. Just jack up one wheel at a time, remove the hub cap and then the rubber plug. The zert is right there and with the tire still on you can slowly rotate the wheel with ease.

My 2015 214WSD has the same axles as above with the zert.

One other thing, is that I will generally pump grease in until fresh grease is coming out. My approach is to replace the grease not just add a little to what is already in the hub. This means I use about three tubes of grease (Lucas red n tacky) in order to do four wheels. It can get a bit messy but I would rather have fresh grease in the bearings rather than a mixture of old and new, especially if the grease you are putting in is not compatible with what is already there.

Agree with twinster2 about lubing until can see fresh grease coming out.

I use Mobile ONE Synthetic grease but Lucas red n tacky is great too.
