    Are there any guidelines as to when you should replace a trailer ball? I have never heard of one wearing out but got thinking about it considering it is metal on metal contact. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Grease your balls. They will last a lot longer.

    Yep. And buy/make a cover for it when not in use. If you don't, you will be sure to get grease on your pantlegs:)
