Interesting JIMLIN because PullRite recommends WD40.

Hi Mike....thats true for your owners manual but as I mentioned in some years PullRite recommended other lubes lubri-plate spray on lube? I think was the name. If I remember correct this was the lube PullRite told my buddy he should have been using. The incident was some time back in the mid '00 era.

+1 Depends on how old the pull rite is. I think the lube instructions changed around 2010-2011.

Prior to using plastic wear plates Pullrite recommended using white lithium grease for lubrication. Never used grease on on mine. Grease attracts dirt and grit.
Have been using a product Called SlipPlate dry graphite for 18 years
with no problems.


Below is from Pullrite owners Instructions.

November 2009 brings a new innovation from PullRite Towing Systems with the use of plastics.
The Turntable Cam Arm Assembly is now equipped with Plastic Wear Plates. It is imperative that you read each of the
following sections so you can learn how to care for your hitch properly.


The Plastic Wear Plates of the SuperGlide’s Turntable Cam Arm Assembly were designed to glide along the surfaces
without the need for heavy lubrication. To protect against rust and to enhance the ease of turning on the Way Tubes,
a light oil (WD-40 or a 3-in-1 oil) should be applied to the Way Tubes’ top and inward facing sides and between the
front and rear openings in the Plastic Wear Plates positioned around the Turntable/Cam Arm Shaft.

Ok... I didn't know they made the Superglide in 2010 or so. Thought that was a newer hitch, but know I see on their website they have the traditional series and the ISR series.

Looks like prior to 2008 require Conventional Grease
2008-2009 uses something called Slip Plate
After Dec 2009 to current calls for WD40

Like I said.. didn't realize the Superglide was that old.
