You are right, oil and greese simply attract dirt which makes the situation worse. I use a dry silicone lube on all the moving parts, I think you could also use a graphite style lube - anything that is dry.

You will also need blocks to level the RV on many sites.
I made up two sets of blocks, one set is 2x6 boards one foot long, these can be placed under your stabilizers or under the wheels to to level the rig, cut one end on a 45 degree angle to facilitate the tire easily going up on it. You can stack two on each other if needed.
Second, I cut the same size blocks from 4x6 boards without the 45 degree angle for use under the stabilizers, again these can be stacked.

I attached a short peice of nylon string to the side of each block making a loop, this is attached by U shaped brads, the string makes it extremely easy to retreive them on hitching up. Easier to carry several to each corner of the rig as ell.

I think that I have abt 6 of each size. And yes I have used everyone of them on occasion.

II use a 12volt DEWALT to operate the stabilizers.
