Reese Dual Cam Sway Controll wear

I use a Reese DCSC with my toyhauler.

I have towed no more than 10000 miles with it. I now have 2 flat spots on the top of the round cam at the trunion bar contact point. The flat spots meet and form a V.

Is it OK to switch sides with these cams so the unused round side can be the new contact surface?

Should I use vaseline on them in the future?

On my last trip I was getting some sway, presumably due to looser tension.

Thanks for your advice and/or experiences.
