Lubing the chassis? Tire rotation?

I'm getting to the time to lube the steering linkages on my 2015 Jayco Precept 29UM. I have a grease gun and I have lubed the axles on my 2 trailers periodically in the past with it. Any recommendations on the type of grease I should use? Synthetics? etc?

Also, the F53 manual states to rotate the front wheels every 7,500 miles and the rear wheels only when unusual wear is noted. There is a nice diagram in the manual. I have also read advice not to even bother with tire rotation on the F53 at all. To date, I have around 13,000 miles on my Precept odometer since purchasing February 2015.

I always used the Mobil 1 synthetic red grease on previous F-53 chassis. I never bothered with tire rotation.

X2 on what BigJohnD said. If tires look good don't mess with them. (if it ain't broke, don't fix it) Any quality chassis grease will do just fine. Most EP grease will be red in color but don't look just for color. EP (extreme pressure) is what you are looking for.

Look closely at your Ford manual. It will show you where the fittings are at. One is kinda tricky to find.
