Default Wheel bearings

I just brought my 210UDS home a few days ago and haven't pulled the cap off the axle to see if it came with bearing buddies, do they usually come without? What's the best way to go bearing buddies or oil bath?

Thanks for the help.

Default Maintenance free on newer models??

I did not know that! I will have to ask my dealer -- I was all set to get my usual annual bearing service this Fall, but maybe not!

Check out link from search. http://www.funfinderclub.com/phpBB2/...=wheel+bearing

newer models might have went back to the grease fitting hubs (like bearing buddy)to save $$$

might be more in search, I know a saw a diagram is a post

check with dealer or pop off wheel and take a peek.

My 2012 189FDS has grease zerks on the hubs.
Generally speaking the axle suppliers say that "grease" works best for situations where the trailer is likely to be sitting for a period of time between uses, and "oil bath" works best for when the trailer is used constantly (daily).

Having said that, we have a flatdeck gooseneck that only gets used once every few weeks, and the oil bath hubs have been totally reliable for us.
But then, all of the hubs I've have had over the years that use grease have been totally reliable too. Regular maintenance has helped, I'm sure ! I'm pretty good about maintaining things.
