    They say you can never have to much of a good thing but i was reminded yesturday as i took the new to me campers drum off that, that expression may be flawed.

    Someone put the caps on that have a zert fitting for a grease gun and obviously went to town on it because there was grease packed into the drum and all over the pads and everything.

    That may be somthing you wanna keep and eye on if you have these type of caps. Its a good thing i dont have a break controller yet because them breaks were not goinf to do anything with all the grease in there haha.

    I have a 94 coleman pioneer by the way.

    That reminds me of a time when I was working as an auto mechanic. Had a customer come into the shop. Said his brakes had started squeaking a couple of months prior, and he had been spraying WD-40 through the wheels to stop it, but now the WD-40 wasn't working anymore........

    This is why we do not suggest bearing buddies......

    We had trouble getting pregnant. Too much of a good thing is very real...

    I wouldn't use Bearing Buddies on a trailer with brakes, but do on brakeless ones....One of my trailers is a 1976. I last hand packed the bearings in 1993. I just give it a shot of grease every now and then and roll on.

    Over greasing with brakes is not a good idea. My TT has the zert fittings, and brakes, the manual states do not over do it and when putting grease in just a little goes a long long way.
    The pads can be cleaned sometimes but at the very least is to replace the rear seals.
