Careful if you use chain lube. It will attract dirt . It is made to stick to chains and not run off. Cheers Gerald

I see a lot of mh owners that have problems with their steps which I believe is mainly caused by incorrect lubrication. I use the spray lubricant that has the Kwikee Step label on it. It sprays on like a thin oil then after a few minutes thickens up to a consistency of grease. It is great to use of other things also. I clean off the steps with a solvent once a year to get rid of road grit and respray with the Kwikee gel lube

Seen this post and thought I would drop in my two cents.

Most leveling system cylinders use wiper seals as the first seal. So that is why you hear the squeals when they are being retracted. So on most systems anything you put on the ram is just going to get wiped off when you retract the jack. If you get a squealer we recommend to our customers to either use automatic transmission fluid or a silicone lubricant. These two items do not attract dirt. Never use any kind of WD that is the worst thing you can use.

Thanks Jason
