B&W Hitch Install

Spent the afternoon installing my B&W gooseneck hitch. Everything went pretty well except when I was torquing everything down. Some of those bolts where a bear to get a torque wrench on. A couple I had to guess on with different wrench. I like it so far clean bed when not in use. Also bought a Companion to go with it. Got that assembled and put on also. Well built and great quality. In the instructions it states that the jaws need grease. Of you Companion owners out there where at on the jaws do I need to put grease? I don't want to jus slather it on and make a mess of everything. As soon as the weather breaks we can go get our new 5th wheel.

The jaws need to be greased on the hitch pin bearing surfaces. If you're not using a lube plate you need to grease the bearing plate too. A little bit will do on the jaws.
