lube choice DEPENDS on which model/brand of stab jacks are on the stream...

1. >>>the 'bal' light trailer stab' jacks (used on safari/i'nationals/clouds) require...

any light 'spray lube' on the exposed screws/threads, choose yer favorite and spray at will.

2. >>>the 'ultra-fab' electric leveling jacks (typically model UF-5000 power twin) have GREASE ZERKS...

and require any standard moly grease injected till it ooozes out the excess/exit port.

do NOT spray stuff externally onto the threads of the ultrafab, it will muckup the grease that's inside.

the majority of low lying 'squEEEaks' noted INSIDE a stream are from the subfloor/frame attachment.

although all the external joints and metal stuff can squeak 2.


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

I have found that chain lube for bicycles works well. It dries as a waxy lubricant and is designed for mountain bikes to resist sticking dirt.
