Use what works for you.

I've got 17 year old Power Gear levelers that have never been cleaned or lubed by anything but the same ATF that is used in the system. They retract in less than 2 minutes. That works for me.

I agree with "some do, and some don't" and tried to say that in my questioned post. I am sorry if I was not clear enough. I did not want to be dogmatic with my statement but general.

I have lived with dyslexia all of my life. I understand what it is to read something and miss the key word or understanding. I am not suggesting that you are dyslexic. It could still be the way I wrote what I said that put you in a state of disagreement. Power Gear and HWH are like Cat and Cummins when it comes to approaching the same problem. Each has their own solutions. Sometimes the users find that the competitors maintenance idea or their own new approach works just as well, maybe better in some cases, and might even save money. But then there are those time that the best intentions cause major grief.

I simply am interested in seeing what other folks say about the CRC stuff when used. Who knows? I just may change my mind in time. As I have already stated. I have only been using the CRC for a few months. Time will tell.

Bottom line? Thanks for expressing your opinion, and results.

Rick

I use the CRC on my Power Gear jacks too! Works excellent!

In fact it's in my tool chest as my go-to WD40 replacement. I never did like that stuff.
.... but I also have been known to run with scissors

Thanks for the input. I never considered it a complete replacement for WD 40 because of cost and availability. Sounds like, if it needs a squeak chaser you use CRC.

I have used it long enough now to realize that it does need to be redone from time to time. That is what I will be doing, when I get the free time, to the awning and jacks. It cause things to work better for about 2 months and now they are going back to slow and squeaky. Nothing, but death and taxes, is forever.
