Not by the book, but I use automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for situations like this. Grease collects dirt, ATF stays pretty clean. ATF evaporates over time so I relube about once a year.

I use Dri-Slide. Doesn't collect grit and stays put pretty well. It's black so be careful of overspray.

Scissors Jacks

I notice I keep getting surface rust on my Scissors Jacks.
I have been using WD 40 but my gut tells me that's not the soloution.

Should I sand an spray with Rustolium before I think of Lube??

No... I was just agreeing with the above posting! Got mine from the RV dealer but I'm sure you can get it from most any automotive parts store!

Ok so at the risk of sounding like a dumbass....

This stuff is called X2 Dry Lube? <Correct?


Thanks,

No. The "X2" is used here on the forum to mean "times 2" or "I agree with that statement".

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.
