I use the can grease Lithium it is nice and neat and keeps the trailer nice and quiet. Turns are smooth and squeak free.

I agree about getting that stuff on your pants swimsuit but usually the boat is always hooked up to the truck so it really is a non-issue when boating. It does become a pain if you un-hitch for loading purposes if that is the case always take it off---you will appreciate it more when your not trying to get grease out of your nice docker shorts:D.

I've never heard of that before but the next time I head out I think I'm gonna grease my ball and see if it works better when lubed up!

Thanks for the info!
Just get one of those little black condoms ;) for the good in keeping it off your pants. Tow a heavy trailer w/o grease..with tongue weight, you'll see gouges in the ball after a while. Can't be good.

What really concerns me is how many of you have problems with greasy balls hitting your knees. You guys are old! ;)
