    Lippert Level Jacks "Clunking" sound

    2018 375RES. I've read threads where popping or clunking sounds were coming from the hydraulic level jack system, or so I believe that's where it's coming from on my rig. Is the issue still happening to anyone? There is a supported fix from Lippert to add anti-stiction fluid with the expectation the issue is resolved. Also saw where consensus to extend the jacks no more than 12" approx with blocks to fill the gap between the ground.
    Would appreciate any feedback or experience from others that have experienced the same.

    I still hear about the popping and the anti-stiction fluid is the fix. (it fixed mine several years ago)

    Not sure about a consensus on always using blocks to keep from extending legs... The only time I use blocks is when I know I will run out of stroke or ground is rocky.

    I was getting the popping from the Jack's (most noticeable at night). I started using the Anderson jack blocks (for a totally​ different reason) and as a side affect all the popping went away. Love the jack blocks.

    We also have and like the Anderson jack blocks and have not had any noises, but we also have had the blocks since we first purchased our rig. With regards to the anti-stiction fluid, just curious and just in case, how much does one add?
