Help! Acer palmatum in trouble

Olympia, WA

Anyone have a diagnosis? It feels dry to touch, not tacky or slimy. The tree is a beauty. I know the crotch is a problem, but Id hate to lose it so soon.

Maybe one of the cankers on this page. Some of them say they are dry, at least some of the time. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/maple/maple-tree-bark-disease.htm
