BALLS.......should you clean them or just replace 'em?

I was looking at my ball this morning......haven't hauled the boat for a bit but I might tomorrow. I was just going to grease it up and use it. It has some wear on it probably from lack of grease in the past. Maybe just replace it? Maybe remove the hitch next time so it's not in the weather!

Thoughts?

Looks a million times better than mine - I have never greased mine. Wish I would have bought one of the SS ones instead of the steel one.

You could spend abotu 2 minutes with some steel wool and polish it up...
