Any other suggestions on what to use.
Krown T40 has worked well on my stabilizers. I like the way it creeps and thoroughly coats.

Dry silicon works well on the awning arms.

I was kinda thinking about trying spray type Garage door track
Lithium. I have used WD in the past but it does not have much staying power. There's a lot of turbulence of wind and water up under there when you run in the rain so maybe the answer is just a periodic application of whatever. Remember three in one oil?

Thank you to Daubsy for this thread as I have been wondering the exact same thing. Also thank you to Jim for adding that Escape trailers come with a wrench for the task.

Sometimes labor-saving devices are too much work.

I pretend I'm doing some weird type of yoga when I hitch and un hitch it seems better if I consider it good for me.
