Trim/jack pump fluid?

Whats the best stuff to use? Think "jack" oil is abit thin? Supposed to be about 10w40 viscosity i think but not sure? Dexron atf fluid maybe?

Yeah i have used jack oil in the past but i found you get alot of pump on run due to the fact that it is thin if you know what i mean? I need something a little thicker! I use atf as recommended by latham on my steering already with no probs!
