Yep, yup. I agree with you and also B&B prior re the rust. I was always
advised to not grease the contact points on the WDH as you WANT a little friction and resistance to help it "do it's thing". THAT being said tho...it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to lightly grease those points (same grease you use on the hitch ball) just to see if the problem rights itself which I think it will.It rained for two days...TT was on a tilt during that time...which unwittingly exposed one side of the WDH more to the weather and guess what...then you got the rust. However, it should go away by itself the more you drive it, sooner or later... If not then take it to the dealer and perhaps start with the bearings in the wheels? Break a leg!
PS: I never removed my WDH, or any of that when backing into a site with my former 25' TT with dual axles. I think it actually made the backing process much MORE predictable and accurate, spotted or not, so nah!
