5TA power landing gear

For those with the 5, do you do any type of maintenance on the landing gear? if so, is it required and what do you do?

Not really any maintenance aside from keeping the actual legs clean and free of mud, dirt etc.

I occasionally spray the worm screw with silicon spray as it doesn't seem to attract dust like an oil lubricant would.. Silicon is a useful tool for things such as the entry steps, inside padlocks, electrical plugs etc.
