    My power folding tow mirrors have been giving me issues when un-folding. Sometimes they don't un-fold all the way and if I forget to check I may drive off and notice that one mirror is pointing at the side of the truck instead of traffic beside me. It's dangerous sometimes. If I cycle them 2-3 times they will usually fold/un-fold completely but that's getting annoying.

    I'm thinking (hoping) it's just a lubrication thing as they do squeak when moving - like a plastic on plastic squeak. What would one lubricate these mirrors with? I have a whole slew of lube sprays but I don't know which would be best. White Lithium, WD40, chain lube, dry lube, etc.
