    Best lube for electric antenna?

    Noticed the antenna started sticking a little bit with the cold weather. Going to clean up the debris but was wondering what would be the best lube to use? Looking for something a little better than just good ol' WD40. Is white lithium grease good on these?

    Yeps, I use a bit of white lube. Just don't pack it full. There is a drain tube on the motor for a reason. Be sure clean any stuck on grease from the shaft segments as well....sometimes is builds up like a bathtub ring where they meet when extended. Sometimes all you need to do is clean and polish the segments.
