Well the proof will be in the pudding. I just sprayed the jack cylinders with the dry lube and exercised the unit a few times. Will wait for the outside temps to fall around 50 and see if this will work. Usually when I get up in the morning and move around it will start popping. Will keep you posted.

As of today, no popping noise. I sprayed the jacks on Feb 12th. The temp here in Florida has gone done to 44 degrees. No popping noise at these temps. I think the dry lube has eliminated the popping.

So far so good, no noise. Will spray them again before I head North to the cold country. If this works --- Thanks...

Had the same noise on my LCI leveling jacks and some squeel. Sprayed the extended Jacks with Silicone spray on all noise is gone. I have used the Jacks about 10 time on the new coach so kind of surprised we need to spray them.

Does anyone have a technic on how to lower them softly? When I press the retract button it drop the whole coach hard and rattles everthing.

gg,

If go into manual mode the jacks only retract while you hold the retract button so you can pulse the retract if needed to slow it. Just remember to be sure the jacks are fully retracted.
