05 LSV, garage kept, lots of pushing the boat around to fit in the garage. The trailer jack has become very difficult to crank as well as having trouble with the wheel changing direction freely.

Appears the jack is either damaged or needs lubrication. Found the Fulton "owners manual" for the jack and it appears it can be serviced. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet. Anyone had any experience with it?

I started having problems last night on my jack (hard to turn and squeeking). I extended the jack raised it upsidedown and used a white lithium spray oil that I use on my motorcycle chain and sprayed between the metal tubes and then I sprayed through a smallhole in the gear mechanism on the topside. This stuff works well as it adheres real well and won't wash off easily. No taking apart here.
