The saying "any grease is better than no grease" comes to mind here. Just a thin layer will do as anything more gets squeezed out or otherwise goes away over time. You should be using some grease on your trailer ball hitch (maybe you don't trailer); just use that. If you don't have any, I'd buy a small can of marine grease.
