100-400L - useful tips for handling/care ?

I have this lens and i wonder if there are some issues to take into account

for instance the friction ring: does it wear out after some time ?

i mostly extend the lens to a certain extend and then strenghten the friction so it doesn't creep

are there some things to know to keep the friction in good shape/condition ?
