Hydraulic’s

Hey i am hearing a popping (cracking) sound on my 2013 big sky. I think its my hydraulic jacks but really am not sure, has anyone else experienced this ? I have the trailer parked right now on my concrete pad.

Sounds like several other folks experience. There is a thread here about" stiction". Search that out . We finally had that sound with our new 3820. Added a quart of Maxxima Fork
Oil..so far so good ...Caterpillar and Torco are other brands that Lippert endorses.

It has been a common problem and the fix mentioned above has always solved it.
