The main thing is that it's greased! It'll affect a lot of things when it's dry. We just use "grease" grease where I work, comes in a 55 gallon drum, we slap it on with a board, but that's for 60 or 70 trucks. I'd do like Mark and get some Jeff Gordon- Dupont Super Supreme Marine Teflon grease for one truck. I'll usually pick up a tube or two of general purpose grease at Wal-Mart to keep in the truck, and when I have to drop the trailer i'll put a tube of it on there when I hook back up. I put the grease on,lower the airbags, then back up until the kingpin is just starting in the 5th. wheel,then fill the airbags. That way it doesn't just push all the grease off the front of the 5th. wheel when you hook up.

I used to use the lucas 5th wheel lube in the little squirt bottle, great stuff you can use very little and it lasts a good long time, I tried lucas red n tacky grease on em too it works like a champ also.
