I found that grease just collected dirt which adds to wear. From looking at my hitch head I don't think it looks like it has any wear and that with a alot of miles on it. ON my personal trailer with the Reese Dual cam i did use petroleum jelly on the bars but that was it.

I used to buy the Reese Hitch Ball Lube all the time in Walmart, but have not been able to find it in any their stores for some time now. Per the link to Walmart in your posting, Walmart no longer carries it and drop ships the product from some other vendor. The price quoted, $26.50, is outrageous for the "four ounce impact resistant jar" that appears in the description. On that same webpage, it showed two other vendors where it can be purchased for under eight dollars.

For the hitch ball, maybe, but what about the hitch itself on the trailer? I've never known anyone that's ever had to replace the trailer's hitch, but I'm no expert in that department. Perhaps someone who has can chime in.
