I'm wondering where I should be lubricating. On both sides, there is a set of plastic double rollers inside and outside. There are some metal gears accessible in the inside as well. There is also some around the main motor. (see pictures attached... Guess I need to vacuum the bugs and spider webs off as well)

Should I be lubricating all of these?

Thanks,
Paul
I lubricated ours, especially the rollers

Sounds good. I think I'll lubricated the sets of plastic rollers and maybe the main motor. I'll wait on the metal gears as we are going camping this weekend and I'm concerned about it dripping and don't want to deal with that while we are camping. I'll do that when we are back.

Thanks for the advice,
Paul

I used a dry silicone spray

I effectively used some 1/4" or 1/8" plywood and some 1x2s to make a holder for them under the bed (with some foam in between to protect them). Had to be careful raising and lowering the bed, but was still able to fit 3 (sometimes 4) bikes in there as well. Haven't used it the last 2 years as we have always been staying in sites with electricity, but was useful our first year when we had a few non-electric sites.
Here are some more pictures of my solar panels holder.
