My TT is 5 yrs old and I’ve never done anything to the electric jack. Is there any maintenance that should be done to it? It’s been working fine.

If it's an LCI unit they are a sealed unit and supposedly should not require any maintenance (IE they are disposable), other manufacturers call for partial disassembly and the application of a high melting point grease to wear surfaces.

I don't recall any required maintenance for mine. It's about 14 years old now and still working great.

I had a Barker that called out lubing something. I ignored that, probably over loaded it and basically abused it for 13 years.
Despite all that, it worked flawlessly.

There is a zerk on the Ultra-Fab. I do a couple pumps every spring, but it still makes awful grinding noises. Been this way for 4 years. Goes up and down, though.
