    you could change the oil if it's been awhile ,grease the angle cylinder ram's ,clean and put dielectric grease on the control harness plug's ,check the truck over for connections .

    It wouldn't hurt to also grease or PB blaster the top of the lift ram eventhough you collapsed it all the way. Moisture can sit in the top of the seal.
