Converting Oil Bath Hubs To Grease Hubs


Hello - I have dual Lippert 8K spring axles on my toy hauler. Part No. V000468561. They are oil bath hubs. Can it be converted to grease?


Expert Reply:

Converting oil bath hubs (like what you have on your Toy Hauler) to grease hubs is just a matter of cleaning out all of the existing oil, and then using a high-quality grease like # L11390 to re-pack the hub and bearings. It can get a little trickier when going the other way (grease to oil bath), but changing to grease doesn't require any other components.

You might also be interested in the Bearing Packer # PTW1218 to help with this process. I have attached a short video demonstration that you may find helpful.
