Question for Snoozy owners about greasing hubs

To grease the bearings on the Snoozy, I see there appears to be a grease fitting under the rubber boot on the hub. What I'm wondering is how to access the fitting. Do I pull on the boot itself, or is it attached to the metal ring surrounding it?

Sounds like Dexter E-Z lube hubs, there is a Utube video on how to use them if you do a search. If that is what you have, you still need to manually take them apart to inspect the bearings and replace the seals, and repack yearly. The Dexter website also has a manual on their Hubs, it includes a section on the E-Z lubes.

Ok, thanks, I found a video and by appearance I think that must be the one. I see I just pry the rubber part out. It says to jack up the trailer and spin the wheel while pumping grease; that part surprised me (and makes the job less E-Z!).

The old Burro had Bearing Buddies, and that was a fair bit different.
