Called Husky ( Great Service ) and was told just to put a little grease to prevent the rusting, and it would not effect the anti sway. Well, i'm a hardhead, so will grease the arms to prevent rust,but, will remove it with brake cleaner before we tow.
Must say, have not had the hitch out on RT. 95 yet to say anything about it's anti-sway, so i touch " Nothing " untill a good test. !!
I use the equalizer, I was just told to use the hitch as normal, paint will come off and there maybe some surface rust. They said at the end of the season clean up the brackets and arms and repaint them once a year. This is also what the manual stated. I just do this and dont worry about the imperfections and scrapes.

Also I agree that you'll be very disappointed with a Ram 1500 pulling/carrying that big of a trailer. Mine only weighed 7k and I took a huge hit on selling my 2013 Ram 1500 so I could get into a 3/4 ton. I happened to also move from gas to diesel at the same time and love it, but diesel may not be necessary depending on your personal driving plans/preferences.

Good luck!

pretty sure this was meant for Rideandslide since he post a pic but I have a 1500 Ram and it pulled my 09 Springdale with ease. I may be going longer with my apex purchase but for me i'm lighter in weight. I'm very pleased myself with what a Ram can do, other than the crappy coil springs... but I fixed those as well

Nope- Don't think intended for me ! 2013 Ram !500 5.7, Air Lift 1000 Air Bags, Hushy Centerline TS Hitch and Grey Wolf 26RL 5700# Dry. Truck pull all great, the bags where a great addition and would recommend to anyone with a Dodge !500 . Hitch is new,impressed so far, but final judgement still out .

Many opinions on hitches, just like trucks. If you don't want to spend $2000, I have an Equalizer 4 point listed in the classified section if you are interested and not too far away. It is a 12000/1200 and is one year old. Pick up only or meet somewhere as it is to cost prohibitive to ship.

My new truck will also be my daily driver, I would only be pulling my trailer once a month for a long weekend somewhere in state.
