    I'm looking through my manual for a Chariot. I can't see any mention of greasing the spindals cavitys. I can see a nipple on each housing and my dealer isn't aware of any GD prescribed maintanance on the spinadals. Should I be pumping grease up there or not?

    Thank you.

    its just to fill the cavity with grease, to not get water condensation in there.

    there is a small hole on the other side, so you can't over grease.

    After the initial break in period you should grease the spindles about every 40 hours. Once you get on a regular routine I would just put in 2 to 3 pumps of grease every 40 hours. I hope this helps. If you would like further information you can get it on our website at

    Thanks for using Great Dane products.
