My fifth wheel has a chain and sprocket system. I went to camp world yesterday to buy some lube. When I asked what kind of lube I needed they didn't know but said try silicon. Any ideas?
Thank's
Chuck

Hi, Chuck!

You might try stopping at your local motorcycle shop.? They carry several different brands of chain lubricants.

Chuck,

I believe your best choice for a lubricant for the chain and sprocket system is a so called  dry  lubricant sold for bicycle use.  You don't want to use a lubricant that will cause dust and dirt and sand to stick to the chain and since there is no speed involved, a bicycle shop selling off road bikes would be the place.

Keep us informed on what you choose.
