I had the same sway control device on my old TT and had the same noise. You can lube the ball and sockets just not the slide bar itself. I took the two pieces of the slide and used steel wool to remove the rust and it will help until it rains again. Other than that is the nature of the beast and the noise does not hurt anything.

Dolson60174,
That last link is an Equalizer Hitch. Mine is noisy too but I love the quality of the weight distribution and the anti sway components of this hitch as well as the simple hook up methods. I can put up with the creaking noises it makes.
I do disconnect the bars prior to backing it into my back yard only because it's a pretty tight turn and by not having them on I can get it into the yard easier. I Have never had a problem backing into a campsite with everything on. It does creak quite a bit depending on the angle of approach but I'm ok with that.

It's common...you get used to it. It's kinda embarrassing at first as you drive into the campground but people who have been camping for awhile don't even pay any attention. Have fun camping and don't let those noises get to you.

grease the ball on the hitch, if you have the friction type anti-sway that one part slides inside the other, do not grease the slide. grease the 2 balls that hold the sway bar on, but not the sliding part.
