I got freaked out and drove to that gas station right next to Airstream. I greased the ez lube on both, and the noise stopped. I was on my way to Nashville stopped in Kentucky her grease was not looking good. I called a couple buddys who said just keep checking it and greasing it at every fill up. Got to Nashville and had some trailer place repack as I have to much into her to risk it. Bearings were fine along with shaft, but the grease looked like slime. They told me every 800-1000 miles. I thought every 3000 as this is when I pack my ball joints after oil change. Thanks for clarifying everyone.
IMHO, 800-1000 is extermely excessive and unnessary. I think 3000 is too, for that matter.
