Thanks! I do have my manual, but a digital copy is nice. And, hey, would you look at that, the manual pretty much says exactly what Trevor says:

Inspect and Service Yearly
1.) Clean and recoat lifter posts externally, with a rust
prohibitive, non-drying lubricant.
2.) Annually grease zerks on front, bottom and top of master
tube.
3.) Lubricate springs annually by raising the roof to the
UP position. At each segment of the telescoping post,
lubricate with 30 weight oil, taking care to inject the
oil into the opening between the posts. To help avoid
tent damage, immediately remove any excess oil on the
external portion of the post.

I prefer the dry silicone over the oil on the post.........the oil makes your tent material get nasty after awhile. Shooting some down in the hole makes it go down the tube and help the cable make the turn.

Not sure if it is the same on your popup, but this is how the dealer recommended I lubricate the corner springs on my Flagstaff.
Remove the two bolts at each corner:


From under the trailer, carefully pull the bracket back and down:


Apply inside the conduit:


Push bracket into place, and install bolts. Takes about half-hour to do all the corners.

That would work.........you could even probably shoot some grease in there also.

I asked about a shot of grease and the maint guy (also the owner) of the dealer said grease would not be a good thing in that small diameter tube. Cold weather operation might cause it to bind up a bit, hard to get any grease down into the tube (especially to the 90 degree bend where you really want the lubrication) and the oil would do the trick.

He also said earlier models came with some small holes at the 90 degree and if there, you can shoot some oil into the hole and tape it up with duct tape.

I guess the bottom track area under the trailer grease is ok since the area is larger.
