Brand New Hitch Question ?

Just finished installing our new Husky Centerline TS Hitch, this is our first trunion style hitch. Everything went great, only had to disassemble once for angle adjustment. The area i have to work is grass, fairly level, but still not great, all done so decided to tow her up to the nearby shopping center with a flat paved parking lot to check final measurements before locking everything down, made at least a dozen or more 90 degree turns in the 10 miles or so trip, quiet , no creeking, poping, or groaning ( something the TS claims over it competition ) .
Here's the question, is this wear on the lift bracket, from the spring bar normal ? I know it's just powder coating, and friction is part of the sway control, which i have no input yet on that, just a short trip .

Is this normal ??

It is normal. I install those a lot, like them, and see them all rub off the powder coat.
