Well it passed predelivery inspection, but I've never owned a power awning so I thought it was par for the course. Should I have them look at mine too?

Mine is on a fifth wheel and it does not do that.

Looking at that video, I don't think my awning does that either. I'm pretty sure I'd remember that. Definitely looks like the gas shocks releasing like they were sticking. Have to wait until the big melt before I can remove the cover and check it out.

I watched the video, and that's the same thing my last two awnings did. Like I said in another post, I put Slick50 on the rod of the shock and they never done it again, I tried oil first and it worked for a short time, the slick50 worked all year.

That's the "pop" lubrication will eliminate that so the shock contantly is applying pressure when unwinding. You could also have a bad shock and the only way to confirm is to remove it and see that it expands when compressed.

Well, we're talking off this evening for our first trip in the new trailer, so I'll lube it up with some WD-40 and see if that changes things. I'll pick up some slick50 next week.

Mine does exactly the same as in the vid. I will be lubing it next time I see the trailer.

Wondering if 3-in-1 will work? I have it easily accessible as I keep a bottle in my trailer. I have some spray lube in the garage, and I have some really high quality stuff in my range bag if you guys think those might work better?

I tried the 3-in 1 oil, but it didn't last very long, the seal on the shock wiped it off, the slick50 is so slick and sticky that it stays on.

x3, since new. I come out 2 feet, wait for the pop then continue. I thought it was the gas shock initial push out on the arm.
