I noticed that there were zerks for the jaws. How often have you greased those (and how to do you release any old grease ?)

I see what you're meaning, I personally wouldn't put any grease on the hitch head itself, I keep trailer level when hitching up then put some weigh down on the hitch before it locks. Couple pumps in the zerks couple times a year, nothing extreme, it stays covered in the truck bed anyhow, don't ever worry about any old grease

Added very little distilled water to batteries.
Best to never let them get low.
My dad was always buying batteries
for his rig due to not checking water levels.
Top off with a little charge.
All running at 100%.
Heading out in a couple of weeks.

Battery manufacturers say to charge first, then add distilled water. You only add water first if the plates are exposed. I used to do it in the other order until I actually read the maintenance instructions!
