What Bolts of Husky Weight Distribution Head get Greased

Question:

I bought this hitch from you guys about a year ago and have been trying to follow up on the maintenance. The manual and your website description both say about the same thing: The 3/4” trunnion hex bolts come lubricated from the factory, re-lubricate if needed with bearing/axle grease. But nowhere can I find an illustration/demonstration of what doing this lubricating the trunnion hex bolts actually looks like. The manual also says Do not apply lubrication to the friction surfaces of the top and bottom plates or on the top or bottom trunnion surfaces as this will reduce the built in friction sway feature. So I definitely dont want to do this incorrectly. Would appreciate any guidance. Thanks

Basically you'd remove the hex bolt you mentioned and then apply the grease to the threads of just the bolt and then reinstall it. Everything else would need to be left alone so that the needed friction is still there.
