Lubricating Motors

Lubricating the shaft of your motor can assist in deploying and stowing your motor. You will want to use a water-based silicone spray. Sprays like Pledge or Armor-All work well.

*Please note, we do not recommend using oil-based lubricants like WD-40 because oil-based sprays will attract dirt and debris and cause issues.

To lubricate your shaft, wipe the shaft with a rag or paper towel with the Pledge or Armor-All on it or spray the shaft down with the spray and  wipe it to evenly coat the shaft.
