    2011 Flagstass 625D with Goshen lift (electric winch) I replaced and sealed the electric fan, did some general cleaning and lubed the lift system from below and dry silicone lubed the lift arms. I need to pull the spring tubes and add some 30w but couldnt remember the correct amount. 10-20cc per tube??
    T.I.A.

    Hi, I dropped the tubes, covered the bottom weep holes with tape and used 120 wt. gear oil. Put it in with a horse syringe. Lots thicker and I felt it would last longer.
