I use a white spray lithium grease on both the ball and inside the tongue. Color really doesn't matter as it will get that nice "greasy" look....

HitchGrip works so well I wish I'd had it sooner. No more grease on me, no more deadlifting that awkward, toe smashing hitch! You won't be sorry

Looks like a lot of HitchGrip users out there. I bought mine on sale 2 years ago and think its the best thing since hot buttered bread. Can't live without it now and no more back straining.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

If you are looking at getting a HitchGrip- Rvupgrades.com has the Hitchgrip tool for $19.95 +shipping. A bit lower than Amazon unless you have "Prime" and depending where you live. If you purchase more than $99.00 worth of stuff from them shipping is free.

I use Liquid Wrench White Lithium Grease on the outside to the 2 sockets where the bars go into on the head. I don't put any on the ball; should I?

X2, RV Upgrades has some excellent prices and this hitch grip is even cheaper than Amazon. As Explorer03 said, if you order enough for $99 shipping is free.

I recently ordered a Stromberg Carlson Trailer Tray from them. It was less than
$200, when Amazon and Stromberg had it for $20 and $80 dollars more, respectively. Their trailer tray was even cheaper than most people sold the S/C Bike Bunk for.

Buy the Hitch Grip. It seems expensive but I personally think it is well worth the price. Like a previous post, I also use white lithium grease. I started using the spray first and ended up with a little overspray on the truck so I went back to the lithium in the tube.
