Popping noise

A friend of mine is traveling with a 2009 Montana 5th wheel. When it is parked with the hydraulic jacks down there is a popping or cracking noise. The jacks are not loosing hydraulic pressure as they do not settle. Any one have this problem? He has had this problem since it was new but the dealer can't find a solution.

I had the same problem on a 2011 Cardinal fiver that I had. There were articles on the Forest River forum about it. There is a special additive that you get from CAT that will stop that from happening. I can't think of the name of what they call this, but it is a known thing in the hydraulic field. Hope this helps. If I remember right it was about $30 for a quart. Expensive but it did the trick. Randy

Don't believe that unit came with hydraulic jacks as standard. Keystone didn't start using them until just a couple years back. Otherwise, he should try the Montana Owner's Club forum - I'm certain there are other owners of the same year and model that will give suggestions.

If your friend has the Lippert Level-Up system, this will take care of the popping. It's an anti-stiction fluid and took care of my popping. Mostly happens with the changing weather temperatures.

Thanks Keith, I couldn't for the life of me think of the words anti-stiction. That was it exactly. Randy
