Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Maintenance

Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Maintenance

  • B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitches are designed with extremely tight tolerances so that it has an optimum level of strength and your hitch ball will not rattle in the socket.  However, if you just leave it in the socket for an extended period of time it can become difficult to take in and out.


    What should you do?  Quick and easy maintenance.


    •       Grease the four corners of the hitch ball shaft with white lithium grease.  Purchase grease at any hardware or big box store.  Make sure to keep the flat sides of the shaft clean.  Just a smooth, thin coating is all you need.  You don’t want it to gum up. 



    •       Clean out the socket with a brush or with compressed air.  An easy option is to rinse it out at the car wash, just make sure it’s dry before you put the hitch ball back into place.


    •       Under the bed in the spring component of your handle dirt and debris can get caught. You need to clear it by popping the handle every now and then. Just pull the handle out engaging the spring and release it letting it pop back into place. Keep the spring clean and free of any grease as well. Grease will attract dirt and grime.



    That’s it!  Simple maintenance will keep your Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch working well for a long time.
