Slide Toppers Noisy

I've had 4 other units/coaches with slide toppers and they never made a sound / noise. But on the Redwood if there is a slight breeze all 4 make noise. Like the wind is making them unroll an exra 1" or 2. But this goes on all night and the breeze is only 10-15 mph. Can the rollers be lubed say with WD40 or a CRC product.
any suggestions would be helpful

I don't think they need lubrication, but rather, they need more tension on the the roller take up springs. One or two additional turns on the take up springs will likely be enough. You can access the the take up spring mechanism on right hand end of roller. Go to the Carefree of Colorado web site for information and manuals.

Hope this helps.
