As it turns out Equal-i-zer says to grease those surfaces. Doesn't hamper the sway control at all just quiets the squeeks.
I have also used the white lithium grease and tried paraffin. The paraffin keeps stuff cleaner but also wears off fast. Need to reaply at every hookup. I might try silicone next summer. Plenty of clean rags to wipe stuff down for now.
