These jacks are sad,the manufacturer did not make a real spot to lubricate the jack.
I almost lost one last year and did not get help from anyone.So the jack was shot and I was going to have to spend big $$ to replace it ,well I extended it and drilled a hole right through both walls into the screw itself and pumped in about 2 oz of oil.That did it, it started to work or what .These jacks cannot sit for long without seizing in the spot they are.I'm starting to wonder about this season but I will probably drill out the other 3 and keep on camping.

On the oiling of the happijac stands.

Every two years I remove the jacks from the brackets (Bigfoot camper), turn then upside down and pour regular engine oil down the tude....this effectively puts a layer of oil on the long threaded bolt. I turn the stands right side, let the excess oil drain in a pan for a day or so and the reinstall the jacks....I also add some oil through that small hold (plugged with a white plastic cap). I also add grease to the motor gear assembly...you can get to it by removing the platic cover.

This eliminated all the strange noises etc that I started to hear shortly after we took delivery of our unit nearly 6 years ago. IVER D
