It is Armstrong X2A73, however, there are different names for exactly the same flooring. Someone else used it on an Escape and it happens to go with the fabric and counters we are getting. Pioneer Building Supply in Chilliwack ordered it and they keep it until Escape picks it up at installation time. It is also less expensive than many.
There was just a discussion on Fiberglassrv about EZ Lube. A guy there says he tells people not to use EZ Lube because he has seen so many people put in too much grease and ruin the seals and brakes.
Trailer Life says to repack bearings once a year or every 10,000 miles and Dexter says every year or 12,000 miles. In other words, no reason to put grease in if you are going to re-pack anyway. There are many people, however, who are on no such schedule and do their own bearings only every few years, or want to have someone else do them only rarely. We use RV shops. We want the bearings re-packed every spring, so no reason for us to have EZ Lube. Some say EZ Lube is suited to boat owners because of the water. The seals need to be checked which is not done if someone only puts in grease. See Glenn's explanation above.
Good luck with the build sheet!
