Awning Problems

I have a 2014 Wildwood 27 RLSS with LCI power awning.
Since taking it out of storgage, I cannot get awning to extend.
I have power at switch.
When I press remote, here clicking.
Is there any fuse between switch and motor?
Anything else to check other than motor?

I've heard this before. Can you have someone push the "out" button while you gently tug on the forward arm? A friends was just stuck and this started it out.
Also, can you connect awning wires to a slideout switch to see if it works then? Could be bad switch.

Turned out to be "sticky" arm or motor.
There is an access plug on the motor. Took this out and there is a nut you can turn that extends or retracts awning. Turned this a few times, pressed remote and it worked.
Is ther any recommended lubrication for the motor or gear?

Good. Love a simple fix. I use white lithium with the red straw attached to hit right where I want grease.
