If you VERY thoroughly clean the bearings before re-packing, it won't be possible to get adverse impacts from mixing different types.

I use a lithium-based grease for the bearings on all my cars, my truck and all my trailers (all 6 of them - but only 3 are travel trailers - the other 3 are are a utility trailer, a boat trailer and and my flatdeck car-carrier). I tend to stick with Castrol products for all my lubrication, including in a grease gun where required
