I was just going to order some canisters for my RW and wondered what brand to use...I was looking into Royal Purple 01312 NLGI No. 2 High Performance Multi-Purpose Synthetic Ultra Performance Grease or Sta-Lube Marine Grease for Boat Trailer Wheel Bearings or Lucas Oil 10301 X-Tra Heavy Duty Grease

I probably won't grease anything until I redo the bearings so I'm not mixing grease. Have no idea what Redwood used.

I haven't messed with the Tri-glide yet - and now I think I'll wait after Dave's story! Somebody has already greased mine as it has grease residue on it.

I can say it actually helped mine - much softer 'bangs" when starting and stopping!!!

I used this grease and gun, but didn't pump 3 or 4 tubes into each jerk (er, ah, on edit zerk !!! )...

I came from a motocross background and replacing seals because you blew a seal by putting too much grease in it was the first thing you learned

so I just did a few squirts with a flexible extension in each of the 9 zerk fittings.
I think there were 9...3 on each side and 3 in the middle ???

towed for a bit and could tell it could use more, so added a bit more until the metal to metal sound softened..

So far no blow by.

I used less than a tube of grease in the 9 zeros. Pumped ~6-8 times in each zerk.

I have the same question. I'll probably just repack mine. I haven't been using the zerks, in fact don't think I have them on my Kodiak disk brakes.

Packed 2-3 times now & used a high temperature synthetic, I'm currently out of it, but pretty sure it was Lucas. Not sure it requires any special brand just what you feel comfortable with.

I agree with Danny....I did use the zerks though and didn't have any problems at all. If you have the electric brakes I wouldn't use the zerks because others have had some problems with seals.
