Hydraulic Jacks Popping Sound

I have a 2013 3582RL. After owning this for about two years, (bought it new), the hydraulic jacks make a random popping sound like they are slipping maybe a thousandth or two each time it happens. Really annoying when you're trying to get to sleep. I have timed it, but it can go from 2-10 minutes, no specific pattern and no specific jack. This model has the 6 jack system. Any ideas?

Normal problem get a quart of Cat oil treatment. Or do a search on here there are lots of people with the same problem and the fix for the problem.

This is a common problem. Do a Search on "stiction" and you will find a number of discussions. The bottom line for all of them is to follow the instructions in the Lippert Bulletin for this problem,
