I have the trailer saver tslb2h and have never had it throw any grease on my trailer. I’m not sure why your bd3 would be doing so. I would give trailer saver a call and see if they have any suggestions.

I did Chad, he said there was a few reports of grease flying under the over hang but not many. Suggested I use less grease. Today I put some sheet metal up as a shield to see how it works. Cleaning that grease off is murder on my shoulders so I hope with less grease and the sheet metal it will take care of the problem.

Glenn,
Sorry for thinking you were greasing the plates. However, every time I have ever used a grease gun, I have had grease oozing around from using too much. So, like you said, try just one squirt from the lever...I had a cordless gun that was easy to overuse the grease.

No problem Joe, don't worry about it. I once bought a 42' enclosed 5th wheel for moving our house hold stuff and it had grease on it. What a mess! I'll have to learn the 'just a squirt' procedure, lol. Take care!

Maybe one push of the lever, instead of a 'squirt'?
Is the BD3 the one with the 3 zerks on each side of the upper section?

No, it only has two, one on each side in the middle of the rods.

I added multiple grease fittings to my ts-3 after I had to replace all the pins at one year from being worn out. Poor design. Anyway, I grease all the moving parts except the top plate of the saddle about every 3-4000 miles. I have never had grease flung on to the trailer.

Can you tell by the location on the trailer where it is coming from on the hitch?

The grease starts just behind my Mor/ryde king pin where the wires and cord are, then back towards the door to the basement.
