Proper Procedure and Grease for LXT
What is the proper procedure and best grease to use on a Triton LXT? I did not apply any grease to mine, and launched in salt water all summer long. Should I be concerned about the axle? Are there places you can take these things to have them inspected?

What type of end cap or grease fitting is on the ends of the axle?
Triton has a generic owner's manual available online;
Triton® Trailer Owners Manual
The axle manufacturer's web site should have specific info regarding greasing. How to and how often.
Many Triton models have a flow-through grease system.
There may be a rubber cap covering the outside of the bearing. Take the rubber cap off, and underneath should be a Zerk type grease fitting.
Triton has two different wheel bearing grease systems;
Sure Lube® grease system
In one system, when you pump the grease in, the old/excess grease comes out the front around the perimeter of the wheel bearing fitting
With the other system Triton has on some axles the old grease flows out the back of the wheel bearing, into the hollow axle. If it flows out the back into the axle, you will never see the old grease, it just stays in there until the end of time.
