We have an 07 Silverado and the tailgate does not latch reliably anymore. Might be partially beause of winter. Seemed to start after we bought a Sunlight camper that we use ocasionally, like maybe it overloaded the tailgate. Anybody have any experince with this problem? Thanks in advance!

Take the handle assembly apart and clean it (free it up if needed) and then lube it up. Also lube up the catch assemblies. This has been a problem for years with Chevies and Fords.
Did this in my 95' chevy in August. Life is good (and the tailgate stays up).

How do you get the handle assembly out? I have cleaned, lubed and adjusted the outer ends but have never had the handle out.
