Solder Seal Gunk Liquid Wrench Multi-Use Lubricating Oil. Lowes is where I purchase it.

If your jacks are already slow, it will take some time and several applications for the product to work. Based on experience, one application per week for four weeks should do it. I spray my jack cylinders every month.

This product leaves no residue. Gunk sells a bunch of products, at Lowes. Make sure you purchase the one mentioned above. Via trial and error the other products did not work, for me.

OK I was told to start engine before retracting jacks. This was to put some air in bags so weight of coach was not bottomed out!!!

Gary, Thanks for the info on lub-ing the jacks. As a note about the dumping of air. The leveling system does just that before we start lowering the jacks. Right?? The MH is supposed to sit on the frame so to speak before leveling. Right??

You can lube as Gary says I have done it also but if you have a problem and jack keeps going up slowly it could be the "O" rings have a twist in them and jack is going to bind tight.
The only way I could get jack up was jack up axel and drop axel down with blocks under the jack pad. Once you get jack up than you can drive coach to repair center for jack replacement.
If you have some experiance with tools you can change yourself, the following LINK will explain how to do it, you can get new jack shipped from HWH for $325 plus $12.50 shipping.
When you call HWH they will ask for a number off defective jack and ship you the correct jack.
GO DOWN on the link to near bottom of page and you will see how to do the change out.

Rick,
I have tried other products. None work as well as what is mentioned in my post. I think the most important consideration is to stay away from products that leave a residue.

mercerc44,
You are correct. When one presses the dump button, the coach will lower to the frame. Once the sound of air being released has stopped, the jacks can be lowered and the coach leveled.
