Roof Slow going up

I read several of the Roof posts and watched a few Youtube videos... I like some advice and have some questions that I did not find.

I put my roof down and up about a week ago and I "thought" it was a little slow going up. Today I put it down without a problem. When I put it up I could hear the motor straining and the roof was going up slow. It stopped halfway up. I was able to put it down and it went back up real slow with a slowing/straining sound on the motor.

Any trouble shooting advice would be appropriated

It is a 2007. I have never had a problem with the roof-- so this in new territory.

I have never lubricated any part of the roof
I have not seen any fluid leaks that suggest hydraulic fluid

Any chance it could be just need lube on the joints?

I do not think I am up for taking my roof off alone
