There may be grit in the tubes. We used a cleaning solution (formula 409?) and flushed the tubes with the hose. After the tubes dried the arm going into the tube was siliconed. It really helped. Airstream also has handles that attach to the arm so you can push them outward from the tube.
**Now to those nuts!
Be sure to check the acorn nuts on the awning every so often. After this warning a couple of years ago we found some loose and one missing. It would be costly and dangerous to loose an awning on the highway.
