Yeah you can switch, the most important thing is keeping stuff lubed. The better greases just last longer because they don't wash out as quick or melt out from heat.

The general rule of thumb in grease is that you should never mix red(regular) and green( usually a hi-temp) greases .. It will harden into a clay.

if you do switch it out, flush the components thoroughly just to be on the safe side.

Has anyone tried motorcycle chain lube in the aerosol can? I use some shaffers fifth wheel lube in a spray can, but it is expensive.

for my 5th wheel, i tend to use some gear lube instead of grease most of the time. chain lube would work too.

I do however lightly grease it once in a while though.

RE: Grease Tube Keeper - A Hack
Speaking of 5th Wheel grease, what's everyone else using? I have a little squeezable bottle, don't remember the brand, but it's nearly empty and I'm not thrilled with it's performance. Fairly new to doing this stuff myself so I'm not familiar with what brands are out there and whats good/bad. I use Red Line CV2 for all my grease fittings, wasn't sure it that would work for the 5th wheel or maybe better to go with something cheaper?
