Tongue jack grease?

Weíre about to start our second season with our trailer ó Iím thinking I should grease or oil the tongue jack? Itís a manual BAL model as shown. I didnít get a manual for it and canít find any tips online. It still cranks fairly easily but I want to keep it in good shape. Thanks for your guidance!

Canít claim expert status here but Iíve always shot some silicon spray in mine while cranking the handle maybe twice a year. It seemed to help it to stay easy to operate.

I squirt in 140 wt rear axle grease, but chain saw bar oil would work nicely too. Both are fairly thick and sticky. Hence they stay around for a while.

All of the jacks I ever had on my TT's have been power jacks. I had a jack like the one in your picture on my boat trailer. If you pop off the silver cap on the top you will see two gears that run the jack up and down. I used to coat mine with some clean bearing grease twice a year.


A thought for Valentine's day...have your wife buy you a nice power jack so you won't have to work so hard.......

Thanks! What do you mean ďIĒ wonít have to work so hard? Seriously, I think I used up my Valentineís gift with a new JACO guage/inflator gun for my compressor. Itís on the big brown truck.
