In addition to greasing the ball, also try lubricating the entire latch and safety lock assembly on the trailer coupler. I had the same issue on mine and that made a world of difference. I used WD40 white lithium grease spray and that stuff is amazing. This is what I spray on the hitch ball too.
By the way, i had an issue with the trailer door not closing properly; i had to pull the handle to get it to latch. I sprayed the latch assembly with this stuff and totally corrected the issue. I use it on the storage latches too.
