Thanks for any help
Ours didn't have any paint, but I have personally talked to Husky Customer Service about my hitch, because the trunnion on one side (where the sway bars go into the hitch) is very tight. Like we almost have to hammer it to move it.
I was told NOT to use any lubricant on the trunions, except on the bolts themselves, BUT it's fine to put lubricant (lightly) on the lift brackets where the spring bars go. If you're like us, that is where you are getting wear and rust. So, if the lift brackets are where it is, clean the rust off and put axle or ball grease on that area.
I'd call them. Their customer service is awesome in my book!
