Some leaking is normal to lube seals. See if front cup is still pooched out. If not replace. If it is monitor and check every 50 miles until your peace of mind returns.

I agree with leethefishking. That would not concern me if it were my trailer. The grease color looks normal. If there were water intrusion it would be more of a light brownish color. I have Vault hubs on my Ranger Trail trailer, 2014 and it’s still going strong. Checked my hubs last week and they are no longer protruding so I’ve ordered a tube of grease. If the grease is emulsified when I remove the cap, I’ll do a full disassembly and replace what is needed

From their website:

A slight amount of oil seepage at the rear seal is normal and necessary to lubricate the wiper lip of the seal for long life and sealing contaminants out. If excessive leakage is occurring, contact UFP for instructions.

the indicator is still protruding as much as the other 3 .

my main concern is the other 3 are bone dry and this one isn’t.

McGill's has replaced two rear seals on my 17 ZX in the last 6 to 8 weeks weeks. Mine has starting to show on the outside of the wheels a little so I didn't want to chance it. They will do a complete inspection while they have it opened up. Great folks!

As already said, they will leak a little, but you'll know when it really craps out !!! LOL

i serviced the Vaults on my 2014 Ranger Trail - Tandem myself - was out of warranty, but even if under warranty I would still do the job myself, one because it is easy, two I know it was done right...Naturally you will need to make sure of what your spindle sizes are for ordering seals, but here is some info to get the ball rolling... note, I ended up buying the seals from one place and the Hybrid Oil off Amazon for more money only because they were the only ones who had it !!!

This is a good site, and they have a toll free number to call and ask for parts not listed... https://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/UFP-by-Dexter_bymfg_12-0-1.html

Need 4 seals - they go on the rear. ( again you will need to check your size requirements )
These are the seals: Grease Seal 2.56" O.D. X 1.68" I.D. Ufp (32373) $9.26 each
https://www.trailerpartsdepot.com/s...me=grease-seal-256-od-x-168-id-ufp-32373


All the below is available on Amazon now - for a few more bucks, but to your door in a short order right, non of this supply chain BS... LOL

You will need to buy 4 1/4"-28 NF Grease Fittings ( Straight ) $8 for 10ct.
Fittings: https://www.amazon.com/10-pk-4-28-Grease-Fittings/dp/B002UZZ6FC/ref=sr_1_6?crid=3W3AOE3BLCBBQ&keywords=1%2F4%22-28%2BNF%2Bgrease%2Bfitting&qid=1653531628&sprefix=1%2F4%2B-28%2Bnf%2Bgrease%2Bfitting%2Caps%2C72&sr=8-6&th=1

Get two tubes, I filled 3 hubs with one 14oz tube.
This is the Hybrid Oil:UFP Vault System Hybrid Lubricant Dexter (14 Oz. Oil Cartridge) $37.45
https://www.amazon.com/UFP-Vault-System-Hybrid-Lubricant/dp/B07MXR5PVM/ref=sr_1_1?crid=YGUVCL10HY20&keywords=UFP+Vault+System+Hybrid+Lubricant+Dexter+%2814+Oz.+Oil+Cartridge%29&qid=1653530852&sprefix=ufp+vault+system+hybrid+lubricant+dexter+14+oz.+oil+cartridge+%2Caps%2C118&sr=8-1

Good luck, hope it helps...
