At the Dexter site they say the purpose for E-Z lubes is for wheels that get immersed in water. They give you a way to push out any water and old grease without disassembling. They also call for the same yearly maintenance as non E-Z Lubes.

What's the purpose of E-Z lube axles on campers? Is there any benefit to pumping new or extra grease in if you don't ford rivers?


Happy Motoring

You get to buy a lot of grease if you use them correctly. Great for the economy.

It's a great example of a company marketing a feature that is not relevant, telling you how great it is and then telling you it really isn't of any help because they don't trust their own design not to fail. Well sort of anyway

I've had e-z lubes on 4 trailers. I like them because they save me time and money.

It's called hopeful wishing ... there is no way E-Z lube axles will save you money when it takes close to 2 to 2.5 large tubes of grease to do 4 wheels properly and then more when adding grease and then loosing all that when you have to do the normal tear down and inspect every couple of years anyway.
