Tongue Jack Grease

Anybody know what name/type that forest green grease is in the Atwood tongue jack?

Called Scamp and Micah said they come in from Atwood already greased and he didn't know what they used.

Maybe synthetic? Mine needs greasing and I don't want to mix.

Thanks a bunch for your help.

Cheers,
Wendy

When I looked into this a few years ago all the Atwood docs I could find indicated that just extending the jack and spraying with a light coating of silicone spray lubricant will do the trick. E-trailer also suggest the silicone spray lubricant. They didn't seem concerned with mixing the grease used.

Green Grease/14 oz. (396.893 g.) multipurpose synthetic grease (101) | Lubricant/Grease | AutoZone.com

I myself use motorcycle spray chain lube since I have it and it goes on thin and then gels so it works in and stays put.

It's not a critical application. I would use the same grease I use on my wheel bearings.

That's it! 30W with a tack additive. Bet you don't have to do that often.

Oh my. After posting this I realized that what I meant was the gears above the tongue jack. There is a green grease now, but not enough. Thanks for all your help!

This is most likely the same type of grease used originally, and what I would use too.

Colour does not matter, you could mix red with green. You also only need enough grease to coat the gears, not have the whole compartment filled.

I do have a 14 oz cartridge of that green grease. Don't know how I have it but I do. Maintenance for me when I get home. And my son has a dirt bike so I have motorcycle chain lube if I desire as well as silicone spray.
