Bought a 5th wheeler cougar with ez lube hubs but when I took off the cap on the hub there was empty space inside. So how does the ez lube work? I see no way to get in there to lube. Is the hub itself supposed to be filled with grease? I wonder if keystone lied about it.

I agree with dog bone. I pull my wheels off one at a time and remove the bearings, and clean the races and inner hub then grease them with marine grease, which holds up better to temperature extremes and water than regular trailer grease. Then I apply grease through the Zerks fitting until it pushs out past the bearing, then I put the dust cap on and reinstall the wheel and tire. It's a little more trouble to do it this way, but a lot to be said for peace of mind. smile.gif
