I keep looking at the "lubricate this once a month" sticker on the kwik step, knowing I'm past due.In the instructions, it says one must only use their special "kwik lube" spray-on grease or the heavens will open and a rain of cats and dogs will presage the end of days. (Paraphrasing.)Is this true? With finite cargo capacity, I'd prefer not to lug around something so special purpose. What do you use?Thanks!
I am a bad boy. I think I lubricated my step once, a few months after I bought my PC in June of 2007. That would make it .....3.5 years ago. It does work extremely well with no strange sounds or squeeks.Are you owners having issues with your electric step, or is it simply preventative maintenance? I suppose I should lube mine up.
I don't lube my steps on a regular schedule. If I notice a little jerky movement or continuing squeek and I'm close to my workshop, I'll spray the moving parts. I do try to lube the slide every 2 -3 months.
