    KY might be OK, but water spray from the road might wash it off!
    It is water based so wouldn't cause damage to your rubbers! Suspension rubbers, that is!::bigsmile:

    Well Jon,it just so happens I'm allergic to the smell of burning rubber,which is a Godsend because being an all or nothing man ,I go like the clappers .There's nothing like getting where you want to be as quickly as possible,then lying back and relaxing.
    On a more serious note will copper grease or Wd 40 help,any suggestions?

    I've just conjured up a mental picture of your activities brought on by your Forum name. Now it won't go away.

    Hi Vlad, Did you read all the thread? Our Camper is a Elnagh 7m on a Fiat Ducato (Van ) chassis; the noise was more prominent whilst driving; after trying all sorts over my pit, my son in-law contacted Fiat commercials who explained the constant full load theory, and their solution was to change the shim's for 3mm which I did last week, and its worked (y)

    We don't have that problem.

    A 9 year old daughter wedged between us all night is a complete cure for squeaky springs.
