Vista Squeaks during retraction
« on: May 27, 2012, 01:32:54 PM »
Hi Bill
   On one of the two 16' I installed the Vista squeaks during the last 3 feet of retraction.  The noise seems to be coming from the swivel or just inside the round drum that the swivel is attached to.  I'm guessing some kind of lubrication will solve the problem.  Is there a way to lubricate it?

Just spray it with WD-40.

From SunSetter:
Once a year, you may wish to lubricate the gray plastic bushing on the roller bar on the side opposite of the motor or gear crank unit. During extended use, dust may accumulate on this moving part and may cause a minor squeak as the awning opens or closes. Any type of light lubricant will eliminate this type of noise. You may also wish to lubricate the pivot point of the lateral arm elbows
