Where do you lubricate a weight distribution hitch?
Lubricate the head and hitch ball. Wipe the friction surfaces of the hitch head clean with a cloth. Apply a thin layer of quality bearing grease, like the Equal-i-zer high performance lubricant, to the friction surfaces (underside of the top plate, top and bottom surfaces of the sockets, top of the bottom plate).
