Try Marvel Mystery Oil then put ice bags around the pedestal so it retracts and see if that helps loosen it up.

If a pedestal in installed when you go fishing and removed at the end of the day you can easily tell when the post and receiver need some cleaning and a coating of silicone. Grease would work fine, but it will end up being messy. Most receivers have a nylon or some type of plastic bushing. The problem is when the aluminum post oxidizes and swells. Some steel wool or fine sandpaper should clean up the pedestal nicely.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
