Honestly, I'd go plain grease hubs with bearing buddy (bb). If using grease, you should be checking the hub for water intrusion annually at winterization. Simple to knock off bb, inspect, replace,...

I had issues getting mine to prime as well this year during de-winterizing (did not matter if on fake-a-lake or boat in water). I did just as Thrall is suggesting and that got mine flowing.
