What are your thoughts on giving the hitch ball a little oil?  I have heard different thoughts on this but was curious to hear from you all.

 

Also, we just returned from a lacrosse tournament at Stowe, Vermont that my kids played in.  While there, I was chatting with a fellow travel trailer owner/lacrosse dad at the campground from Quebec.  He  asked if I have “Hub Oil” in our Tahoe.  He said he never travels with his travel trailer without it.  

Do any of you have any thoughts on adding oil to the Hub?  

 

On a separate note, Vermont is a new favorite of ours.  We stayed at a nice campground (Gold Brook) just down the road from the village of Stowe (Stowe is a big time ski mountain in the winter).  Stowe was awesome.  It was cool to watch the kids play lacrosse with the “Green Mountains” as a backdrop

I grease the ball to decrease rust and squeaks.  I store the hitch in a canvas bag, so it does not make a mess.  As for Hub Oil… no idea

AJ – I use a bit of marine grease on the ball and hitch but wipe off the excess.  The grease attracts dust but, on the Gulf Coast, any exposed metal rusts.  I also use a bit of the grease on the step runners and stabilizer jack screws.
