You really shouldn't have to lubricate your ASA, you would only put a drop of oil on the threads if you are having difficulty screwing the tank in.

 

You should maintain the regulator every 10 or 15 cases.

 

You should clean the eyes whenever they get dirty, so inspect them often.

 

The only issue with steel braided hose is that it can fray and poke you when it starts to wear out, but that will take a long time because steel braided hose will last much longer than macroline. I would only switch to macroline when your braided hose starts to wear out or give you trouble, which shouldn't happen for a long time.

 

Hope this helps.

Yeah, any marker oil should work, but the recommended stuff to use is Tri-flow. The reason they put braided hose on there in the first place is because that marker is most likely to be sold to a newer player, and because of it's durability it is one less thing for the user to worry about. That means that you don't have to mess with the braided hose until it becomes an issue, which it most likely won't.

QFT 

I always advise that you regularly maintain your markers after every day of play. Clean them throughly lubricate any critical parts and let it go. For the most part you will never run into any issues as long as you regularly perform preventative maintenance.
