Gemini awning

Does anybody know if I use the same lubricant on the awning arms that I use on the slide out? Or should I use WD-40 or ???

WD-40 is not a lubricant.

The slide lube would probably work fine on the awning arms.

Carefree says:

"lightly spray the joints and/or inside of the channels with a dry silicone lubricant after the arms have been cleaned and dried thoroughly."

Dometic says:

"Lubricate all sliding surfaces of arm assemblies with silicone spray as needed."

While WD-40 may not be classified as a lubricant I think it certainly meets all the criteria of a lubricant.
