Greg - thanks. I just climbed under and used a grease gun and spread it the length of the screw. Lasts about a year before making noise.

I just got a full set from Inland RV too. Shipping to FL was a bit steep but I pretty much knew I was getting what I needed. I left 2 jacks outside for a day or 3 till I had time to install them. I noticed some rust forming FAST on some small scratches and nicks. Anyone think a quick coat of 'rustolium' type spray paint on the plain steel (painted) parts a good idea before I install?

I've tried every kind of grease known to man over the years. All they do is attract sand and grit. Silicone spray once a year is the best way to go, IMO.

I like silicone spray too as a maintenance but only when when one gets a bit tough to operate. Best for me was when I renovated mine a few years ago I used Moiy-disulfide dry lube ( snowmobile CVT clutch spray) in the shop after cleaning/servicing them first, and this has been for me fantastic! No rust or grit issues.

Sure, any dry lube. I think I'll try the paraffin based bike chain lube next spring. Goes on wet, and dries to a paraffin film.
