Jee, I remember back in the day, I used to have a MH that had that problem, come to think about it.

I'd get some wd 40 or some grease in the spray can and spray them down.

I use the same silicone spray I use on the rubber gaskets and such.

Does not attract as much dirt and grime as grease of oil......

Helps in the effort to not announce what is going on inside the rig. But I have not solved the problem of the rig rocking yet....... Well the stabilizer jacks HELPED, but did not stop all the movement........

Hummm...who squeaks more- the TH or the occupants when squirming around?!

Here's what I've done- greasing the suspension on a regular basis keeps the shackle bolts from rusting up and, therefore, squeaking. In the grand scheme of making this whole RV experience enjoyable, I've added this air tool compartment on the curb side of the SLC to house the air-operated grease gun to just make it easier to do!
