I spoke with Reese today, for my trailer and with my 1200lb spring bars they recommend a thin layer of axle grease on the saddles to reduce wear on the cams.

Wow, that is a change up with the instructions. But the instructions do read something to the effect of "lubrication is needed if over 1200 tongue weight". I just figured that meant the Vaseline (poor lubricant) , since it is part of the same section.

My cam arms are wearing with a 700 lb. tongue weight, but I don't think abnormally.

I don't know, my cams and saddles still look new with no signs of wear and they are the original ones from 06. I'm going to keep greasing them, the knuckles, ball, and put at shot or two of WD 40 on the tongue latch. I'll let you know if I run into any problems.
