I don't have my manual in front of me, but I recall the item being covered on a maintenance schedule as opposed to a "title/short paragraph" format. No matter though as my post above really covered about all there was to say about it.
Did you use motor oil (as opposed to WD-40 or white lithium grease)? If you did not end up with an oily jack post, you may not have used enough oil.
I recall a little bit of instant gratification, and then, on the next trip, a substantially smaller amount of effort required.
