Is there a way to grease landing gear on 5th wheel?

The front landing gear on my 5th wheel is the only place I dont know where or how to grease. I have a 2007 33' Silverback by Cedar Creek 5th wheel.

Still can't find anywhere to grease front landing gear. ( no zerks ). Do I just keep using it till it fails? Or start drilling hole(s) and add zerks to put grease in? Might not be related but it's starting to sounds pretty tired lifting the front of the trailer up. Motor getting weak and/or the gears have been running dry?

Pull the top off the jacks and inspect the gears and determine where to put zerks and either insert zerks or pack the gears with grease. Your call.
