Lippert 4400lb Axles - Anyone have an owner's manual?

My 2016 Aerolite 298RESL trailer came with no literature on the axles. I crawled under the trailer to see what I had. I went to the Lippert site. I didn't see any owner manual for 4400lb axles.

From what I can see on the id tag they are 4400lb with a part number 456403.

I'm going to ping the dealer I purchased from. I just wanted to see what comes up here.

I'm looking for the interval and amount to grease the ez lube point.

At how many miles does this group pull their bearing and repack?


(I've just returned from a great weekend of camping in North Georgia (Helen) to get away from the storm)

I've had torsion axles on a car hauler. I always thought 2 squirts every 1k miles. I never raised the trailer and spun the wheel.

I have never had EZ-Lube so no help there. I used to do my trailer axles every other year, tear down, clean and repack by hand. I am kind of old school when it comes to that.

The EZlube axels are not a substitue for a proper cleaning, inspection and repack.

When I was running drum brakes, I would give the EZlube a couple of squeezes, more to move any water that may have gotten in past the seals. Something I picked up on my bike, I never expected to pull the axel for a repack and have a cup of water come out of the axel.

If you travel high miles or through torrential downpours, nothing wrong with adding a squeeze or two. But go easy, you can push grease out of the rear seal without knowing it and lose your brakes.
