Hydraulic Jacks- salt air?

When staying in a salt water area for an extended period do the shafts of the jacks need to be protected from the salt air?? ie, coating them periodically with WD40 or some other thing??

Thanks

Denny

Manual says to spray with silicone lubricant every 2 to 3 days if exposed to a salty environment.

While it is a great lubricant for most things RV, it leaves an oily residue that can attract dust and sand/dirt. Thus the suggestion that silicone dry lube is the preferred lube.

Silicone is good for slide seals as well.

Does make more sense to use the dry. Does the dry last any longer? The liquid version doesnt seem to last long on an exposed surface.

I like using Teflon based spray to avoid oily, dirt catching film...worked great on sailboat at sea...should do pretty well on shore too!
