Does the equalizer hitch need to be greased? I didn't know to grease either. I'm such a newbie! All the things I'm learning.

Most of the campsites we go to have concrete or asphalt pads. When we setup we put our outdoor rug down and since it can't be staked to the ground we have to weigh it down on all 4 corners. I use the WDH bars as corner weights for it. The are heavy and somewhat thin and work pretty well.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

At home my hitch head and bars are stored in the corner of the garage.
At the campsite, the bars are stored on the ground underneath the trailer tongue. the hitch head stays on the truck. I use a ball cover to minimize the possibility of grease xfer.

That and the fact that all it takes is one occurrence of a couple little kids fooling around with them and walking off with one. That could ruin a trip real quick.

True. I keep mine in the storage bay mostly so that I don't invite someone to steal them. At home my RV is a fairly long walk from my garage so even there I like keeping them in the storage bay of the RV.

Don't think there is much resale for 20 pound 30 inch pieces of steel. Kids might steal some beer but I would guess that no one has ever lost their hitch bars
