Your RV bearings need to have the grease cleaned out and repacked with fresh grease regularly. When this isn't maintained, it can be dangerous on the road. In a worse-case scenario, the wheel could actually seize up while driving. Smaller trailers need their bearings repacked more frequently because smaller wheel size means the wheel spins in more rotations during driving. It's recommended to do this every 2,000 miles for the smaller trailers. Large travel trailers require wheel bearing clean and repacking every 10,000 miles or so.
