    Is your leisure battery fully charged? Ours had a similar problem but when I charged the leisure battery on hook up it operated perfectly.

    Also give the mechanism a good jet wash as they tend to catch all the spray from your front wheels. I think that it is best to lubricate with WD40 rather than oil as dirt will stick to the oil and can clog the mechanism up.

    Best of luck.
