Per the owners manual and other wise men they should be checked once a year. Never had an issue with them on the road so no hands on knowledge.

Spare Wheel Bearings

Carry a spare bearing set and learn how to replace them. When inspecting, it's hard to see the microscopic defects which might cause failure. We lost a bearing in the Yukon and were just lucky to find a replacement set at over $100. That was on a tandem axel trailer. The side forces are tremendous when cornering. You don't have that problem with a single axel. We also have a 2008 17 foot Safari. The bearings are a common size. You can buy them from Henderson in Boise Idaho. These are the part numbers for our axel. The prices are about five years old.

AXEL PARTS Henderson Wheel & Warehouse
Brakes w/ Back Plate $48.00 /wheel R #6205, L #6206 ?
Drum w/ bearing & seal $68.00 #10-210 SC ?
Inner Bearing $6.40 #L68149
Inner Race $3.06 #L68111
Outer Bearing $5.55 #L44649
Outer Race $2.87 # L44610
Seal $3.40 #58846
Washer round hole $1.00 #1W
Dust Cap $2.00 #46749

I was taught to apply grease only to the bearing and not put extra into the cavity between the bearings, but I'd like to hear from others on this subject.
