2011 Jayco 321RLTS, greasing the hubs (bearing buddy style with zerks under the caps) Been way to long since I have done that. No time to go to the way to busy dealer before a trip. Stroke till grease flows?

A couple of strokes until you see the disc move out toward you.

I never used it that way but heard you spin wheel while adding the grease.

Follow these instructions carefully or you will blow the grease seal and ruin the brake shoes.

As TXiceman posted. Those are Dexter EZ Lube axles. And definitely takes a LOT of grease to properly grease the inner and outer bearings. Follow the video carefully. Many people say absolutely do not grease those zerks. But done correctly it works well.

If you put even a half tube of grease into the four hubs, you will likely grease the brakes.

Where did the grease go that was in the hub / bearings?
Why is there a need to "add" grease?
Trailer hubs do not used or consume grease.
Putting fresh grease into a failing bearing will not make it last longer. If the seal has failed and leaked grease into the brakes, your adding more won't improve things.
As you are pumping grease several things can happen- the grease you are pumping in may flow out of the outside bearing or if the seal is weak grease will go into your brakes or maybe both.
