Awning Lubrication?

Since purchasing our used 2016 Vegas 24.1, the awning is getting slower and slower going out and coming back in. I don't have the owners manual for it, so wondering if there are lubrication points on, or near, the motor. I will spray the pivot points on the brackets too. Oh, we have the couch plugged in. Thanks

What does the couch have to do with the awning? How do you plug the couch in? Does it have vibrators in the back and electric recliners?

Get on a ladder and look for the awning make and model number which should be on the roller tube. The look up, with your favorite search engine, the owner's and service manuals for the awning.

I use Silicone spray on my awning hinge & slide points (vs WD40 which is oily)
Works good

Gas struts, if equipped, benefit from the silicone.
