Do you use a drill or impact to operate them? Not that, that should have any bearing on wearing them out.
Do you lube them once in a while? If so, with what?
Yes, I have a small 12 volt dewalt that I use to run them up and down. I do lube them once every six months using standard axle grease. In between when I hear a squeak, I will hit them with some WD-40. I thought maybe that was the problem, but all 4 jacks are pretty flimsy.
I agree, I think I will need to replace them very soon.
I was looking into the C style stuff or just better, higher quality scissors. I was also looking at installing an electric system.
I just do not see running them up and down with my drill causing a problem. Literally, if I put the back right jack down, make it tight with hand crank, then walk into the RV, the jack will not hold. It will back down and then the rv is shaky. In a typical weekend I will have to tighten all of my jacks at least three times. I just think they put poor quality stabilizer jacks on my model.
