Lifting screw/post lubrication

My 10' 2002 FR Tent Camper (purchased used last year from private owner) manual calls for lubricating the screws which lift the roof columns I cannot find the lubrication point for the screws. I can hear squeaking and other noise when cranking the roof up and I'm sure some lubrication is needed.
Can someone advise on where the lubrication is performed? I can upload photos if needed.

I'm in the same situation with my 2001 FR 1610 pop-up trailer. The only lubrication points I found were the seek fittings along the track underneath the trailer.

I did spray some silicone lubricant into the telescoping lift arms. I also greased the heck out of the winch cogs.
