If the silicone didn't work this may not either, but while growing up my father taught me to use a pencil and rub the lead vigorously up and down the teeth of the zipper on coats and leg zippers of my clothing to make them easier to zip, something in the carbon dust acted as a dry lube. The dust turned everthing black until it wore away but worked great at the time and I still use it, in fact you used to be able to buy it in a can, similar to a 3 in 1 oil can and apply it that way.

When you set it up instead of pulling the corners tight and putting the ice anchors in try to relive alittle pressure by pushing in slightly on the corners before you anchor it down. Might even want to try anchoring with the tabs on the inside.
