Screeching Girard awnings

Wow, they wake up campers 3 lots away. Mostly on retracting. Very little noise when extending. I tried T-9 on the rail where the three arms slide with no improvement. Both awnings have seen little use since covid and started about the same time.
Any ideas?

I’ve had this happen too. I used spray silicone on the channel and the little “T” piece that rides in there with success.

Try this, just make sure you put a piece of cardboard between the rails and the material when you spray to keep it off of the material.

DuPont Teflon Non-Stick Dry-Film Lubricant

Lubricated the 3-"T" guide parts and 6-pins on each awning. After several cycles the awnings are screech-free. Used DuPont lube with teflon.
