    I have a 1997 Coleman Cheyenne and am restoring it, the floor is torn out to where I discovered the lift system. It had mice nests, etc. So do I grease everything I see under the floor? IMG_20211014_075615757.jpg

    Yes- Grease the screw, the draw bar (the thing the cables are attached to) AND the cover plate, as the drawbar rides along the cover plate while in operation

    I don’t have a Coleman, as stated above “yes”. The assembly is called a Wiffletree. There are several threads on here, as well as YouTube videos on the what, how and where to grease it.
