stabilizer lubrication

Hey guys-
I had family in town recently and they stayed in the pop up in the back yard. Worked great naturally, except that a couple of my stabilizers don't want to move. What lubricants do you recommend?

I know that part of the issue is the beach camping I did last fall, so I have some corrosion involved.

WD40 has a new penetrant that is supposed to be great. Then after you get it moving again regular WD40

I like spray lithium, it's white and a mess but it works great.

I like to use Triflow, which is a Teflon spray. Works great, penetrates very nicely and does not pickup dirt.

I'm on the Gulf Coast in Texas,lots of salt and corrosion. I use CorrosionX. Comes in spray or trigger spray bottle. Dissolves rust and corrosion and is a great penetrant.
