For the scissor jacks, I use a dry graphite spray lubricant like this
Graphite Extreme lubricant | Jig-A-Loo

I use it a couple times a year but if you use your RV more frequently you could use the lube more frequently.
Thank you for the CLEAR Explanation!

I will pick some up today if i can find it in the USA.

Since they are down behind the wheel they are going to get blasted by dirt and water all the time.No lube is going to help that.I just leave them bare.When they get rusty and dont work right I'll just replace them.For $25 each its about the LEAST of the items that need attention on the trailer.

Any dry graphite spray lube will work. Protect-All also makes a dry lube for slideouts that will work just as well.

I use a dry lube that is designed for bicycle chains, no complaints on that. You can get it in the bike section of any sporting goods store and usually at places like Walmart as well in the bike section

No,I m not kidding.I do squirt the mud off them with the hose,but I'm not going to lay down on the dirt and spray them with lube. Do you clean the mud and dirt off your springs and lube the leaves?I tak really good care of my things too,but at some point some things are disposable (IMO) and the flimsy stab jacks are one of them.After one year,the half applied powder coat is peeling off and they are rusting anyway.
