Lubricate door lock / handle

Hi folks,

My door latch is beginning to get a bit hard to open. Iím sure thinking maybe it just needs some lubricant. Any suggestions on what to use and where to apply it?

Thanks!

A teflon based dry lubricant is best. I had a lot of issues with the RVLock electronic latch that I installed. Once lubricated, I can close my door with one finger...instead of lots of tries and giving it the middle finger

DRY being the key here. No gunk buildup.
