Just noticed grease fittings on landing gear.

I have a 2016 8524 Flagstaff that I bought new. I never saw or was told to grease the fittings on the landing gear. I just noticed mine today. That's why i'm on here.
Anybody know how much grease and what is getting greased?
Thanks for any info.

I suspect that it is greasing the operating gear teeth this is a wag on my part

Got a photo?
I've yet to see any but there are a lot of components to what someone may call 'landing gear'.

Give them 4 to 6 good pumps with a grease gun. Don't worry you can't overdo it just might get messy. The part that needs the most grease is the lolly gears on the head of the jacks.

Landing gear clicking noise.....

When raising my front landing gear it's making a loud clicking noise but working ok. I'm hoping I don't have a broken tooth on a gear. I did grease both of them and I also noticed as the button is depressed going up or down the motor that is attached to the landing gear looks as though it's loose. Is that normal? Does it just float. There is a tie wrap from the factory that go's up and around the square shaft that drives both sides. If you blow up the pic you will see 2 grease fittings on the front. Thanks for some info will be appreciated!
