Since our coach sits in storage for long periods, should I put the jacks down and take a little weight of the tires, or does that not help?

Ron said:Yes we are talking about applying the silicone externally.? Based on the reputation of the individual giving that presentation I avoid silicone on hydrualic systems as well as using any silicone products on vehicle finishes.

If memory serves me, and memory can be a bit flakey here, there are basically two kinds of hydralic oil,
One is petrolum based oil, simular in many ways to brake fluid, jack oil, transmission slush, ur, fluid, and the like (all are variations on basically the same product) and the other is silicon.? I've seen it offered as brake fluid, VERY STRONG WARNINGS NOT TO MIX THE TWO types of fluid, seems they do not play nice together
Thus, I'd go with the engineer's suggestion.. Whatever jacks the jack, that's what you wipe it down with
As for my problem.. I'll fix next month at a regular scheduled shop session (Routine, Plus some final sales stuff, Plus whatever needs fixing)
