Question Pin Lube?

Do you lube the pin and if so what do you use? I have a dry spray lube that I've been using but don't recall any discussion on the practice.

Pullrite hitch. No lube on the pin. Lube everywhere else. Lol.

I have one of the disks but couldn't remember any discussion on the pin itself.

Lube plate is all I use too. I spray all of the moving parts down with WD-40 every now and then too. The hitch is a Reese Pro Series, and the manufacturer calls for motor oil on the moving parts, but that's way too messy for my liking.

Try using a spray can of white grease. It goes on like WD-40 but the alcohol evaporates and leaves a nice layer of water proof grease. I put it on the whole hitch including the jaws and the table even though I use a Teflon disk. Never any rust on the table that way and up here in the NW rust gets on everything otherwise.

Yes same here. Grease on the king pin, good heavy duty stuff. The lighter white grease on all the hinge points and a light coating on the table.

I use the nylon lube plate and spray the rest down with white lithium grease.

The other thing I do once a year is take the 5th wheel pivot points open and grease them. Two the let the plate tip up and down have big bolts that I lube and the lower center pin that allows the plate to tip side to side.

Heavy duty grease. I don't understand why the mfg does not put grease fitting on them??
