You get marine grease. Not sure on the name though but any marine grease will be ideal.

Hi just my bit of advice. use a automotive grease,any make will do a  nlgi-2 consistincy grease that contains ep.additive,and is water resistant.PLease make sure to wash and clean the bearing properly never ever mix greases .If you would like to do it once and you travel long distances I reccomend you go for a synthetic high performance grease,a bit pricy but you wont have any more problems .if you require more info i will help with pleasre.

Hi ,I personally use a grease that i think is second to none .It is a synthetic grease used on Boeiing  aircraft its temp. range is -54to+204deg.C.it is water resistant and can take  very heavy loads.I have never had bearing failure since using this grease ,I personally believe that most of our trailer wheels are too small the r.p.m.that they must do compare to your towing vehicles wheels is much higher.also the potholes are so big that a small tyre virtualy dissapears in one .I have changed all my rimms/tyres to the max.Hope this will help .
