Hitch ball

I am new to towing a TT and was wondering if one should put grease on the hitch ball when towing a good distance, say 100 + miles. Thank you.

I leave mine dry and consider it an addition point of sway control...kidding. I add a dab of white lithium grease before trips...its what i had at hand !
