Grease your landing gear!!!

FYI. I was lowering my landing gear on our Brookstone. Heard a popping sound. After investigating, I found 2 grease nipples hidden around the side of both landing gear tubes completely out of sight. The only way to get to them is with a grease gun fitted with a flexible hose. WHY would they hide the grease nipples on the side that is hidden from view? The only way I found two of them was by running my hand down the side that is hidden from view.

I put 5 shots into each nipple, then extended/retracted the gear a few time and the popping sound is gone!

Stay safe!!

parts for these rigs are not manufactured with future preventive maintenance in mind. I say the problem is not the part or the location of the zero fitting, but rather the lack of the RV mfg documenting locations of such fittings.
