Bearing Lubrication

I have a 2009 Keystone Cougar 5th wheel camping trailer with "Bearing Buddy" grease fittings on the wheel hubs. I have 3 questions:

1) How often should the wheel bearings be greased?

2) How much grease per bearing?

3) Can too much grease damage the brake system?

This topic is not addressed in my user manual.

Glad you got the link to their site. I will tell you this much, In 15 years of servicing RV's, My self and fellow tech's, all agree, that Bearing Buddy should get a kickback from RV service centers for supplying the extra work that comes from all the people who don't take the time to read recommendations on lubrication. We performed, and still do, many brake, bearing and seal jobs, mainly attributed to over-greasing those bearings. Good you were smart enough to research it and find out.
