I bring my birthday suit on all my travels, but my wife insists that I not display it outside or even inside in front of the windows. Getting wheel bearing grease off skin is even harder than getting it off clothes.

I use a marine grease that comes in a large tube like toothpaste. Very convenient and you don't have to get it all over your hands to apply after wiping off the old grease. You can get it at Walmart or Cabela's in the lube section.

To cover the greasy ball when we are not connected I use a $1 store baby sippy cup upside down. It works perfectly and stores on top of the propane tank when we are connected.
