I am focused on lift system maintenance this weekend on my 2005 Rockwood Freedom 1950. I have identified (1) of the (2) grease nipples on the "Master tube" that runs down the center underside of my unit. I will hit that with a grease gun.

I do not have any troublesome symptoms - so I don't think I will go much further.

I have a used 2013 Freedom, and I can tell the previous owner greased the "rear bottom" zerk, but not the "front top" (it was dry). You maybe found the "rear bottom" zerk. Look for another zerk that rather than hangs down is on top of the master tube and a bit more forward / front of the axel(s).

Thanks for that pointer.
I have not yet located the rear bottom zerk. (working on a wet driveway this week)
Did you see any need to clean out old grease from the "master channel"?
Thanks.

I have a 2318g too. In addition to the 2 grease fittings underneath in master tube i also oil my 4 lift springs and as i raise the roof i put dry lube on the 4 lift posts.
