Should You Lubricate Where Trunnion Bars Rub Against The Mounting Brackets On Weight Distribution

Expert Reply:

It is not recommended to lubricate where the trunnion bars rub on the brackets that are mounted to the trailer frame. Especially if you have a weight distribution with sway control. The brackets create friction between the bars and brackets when the trailer wants to move off center. That friction is what provides the anti-sway feature which typically happens when you are turning or hitting a bump. I know it can be loud and sounds like it is going to come apart but I assure you that it is supposed to do that.
