Dometic awning; lubricating

On an awning of really any brand, It would seem that the ratchet and spring windup should be lubricated from time to time. Has anyond done that? What would be the best to apply: silicone spray, white grease spray, or what? Into the controller end of the roller seems reasonable. Any problems with this?

We have a 30' LYG, also with the electric awning. I have lubed it sparingly with something a little heavier than household oil. I did it from the ends, primarily on the axles but cannot remember exactly where. I know I was afraid of gettting oil on the cloth.

It would be nice to get at the motor inside the tube. I hope someone pitches in with the straight scoop.
