Yep, I have the same thing going on. The first I heard it was in my driveway with the jacks down. The next day we left for a three day trip and didn't hear it. We got back home and there it is again. If this is coming from the jacks, my question is are the jacks loosing pressure. It's time to get under the MH and have the wife walk back and forth. Be sure to Post if you find anything...

I hear it with my 16 Palazzo when on the jacks after a few days. I use it as reminder to run my engine and exercise my leveling system and air suspension. Motor homes need to move to stay healthy.
It wastes fuel and time, but it needs to happen.

Popping

https://www.lci1.com/assets/content/...CD_0002091.pdf

Called lippert . Need to add a quart of this. Pull in slides and jacks. Then take out a quart of Tran fluid and then add this anti stiction oil.. he stated popping will not harm anything just annoying.Make sure you take out or will overflow.

Same here. Have had that issue since we bought the RV almost 2 years ago. Seems to be affected by temperature changes. It's sitting in our driveway with the jacks down now and I can hear it pop periodically when the temps are rising or falling. Not a big deal. We just ignore it now.

No more popping

Went and got the anti scriction fluid from cat. Half a quart ran the jacks down and up a few times. Popping instantly gone.
