I noticed red "shavings" around the ball on my weight distribution hitch. Is that normal?

Seeing a few red shavings is normal for initial wear and tear as the ball becomes seated into the liner. This is normal after the first few uses of your weight distirbution hitch. If you are unsure of what a normal amount may look like, just contact us and send us a photo of what is happening. If it is more than usual we will work with you in replacing the parts that need to be replaced.
