About how many miles before you add a couple of squirts of grease to bearings? I have a 2012 Pod with bearing buddies on it. Thanks for any help

Repack every 5000 miles and yearly squirts. After driving check wheel to see if it is too hot indicating need for grease. That should do it I think.   Tomcamper.

FYI- I had a bearing blow out and looked like it had plenty of greese, bearing failed.

2010 rpod 177. Greased as needed. Sat Six months for six years in cold north winter. Frozen grease and sitting in same place without moving killed the bearings which were recently replaced. Too cold and onable to move did them in!
