Question quick trailer question

I just put tie down disc's on and new bearings seals used a bearing packer with high temp grease,
now the question, they have no grease fitting just a rubber expansion in the middle of the hub, I used to use bearing
buddy's and grease them all the time, Now I just think I'll dissasemble every 2000 miles and do a repack that way in with the new and out with the old DOES this sound like a good plan
if not what do u do

My trailer axles have grease fittings and the spindles are drilled to allow excess/old grease to be pushed out the back.
I guess repacking every 2k isn't bad unless you have more than one axle.
There's a company that sells a conversion kit to switch from grease to oil. They claim the bearings run cooler, last longer and of course there's no repacking. If my spindles weren't drilled I'd go with that type.
Can't find the name of this company. Will post address as soon as I find it.

Found it!
The product is called Turbo Lube.
It requires new hubs because the end cab threads on but it would be worth the expense (about 60.00 per hub).
And get this, it's made by the same people who built your disc brakes, Tie Down Engineering.
Tie Down Engineering, Turbo Lube
