Burley hitch connector in cold weather

This is my first winter using a trailer in cold weather. Previously, I've been using panniers, but have grown so attached to hauling large loads... well..

Noticed though that the Burley connector -- which is usually so pliable -- is getting kind of squeaky and crunchy in cold weather.

I also have a problem getting the pin in. Think I might have to but some Phil's grease on it... largely cause it's just really stiff.

Anyone seen this before?
