'X" mechanism on Horizon half slide

On my or Itasca Horizon the passenger side bedroom slide is a Half slide that has the HWH "X" mechanisum. Slide made quite a loud squeaking sound. I lubricated all the rubber seals with slide lubricant, with no improvement. Removed wood trim to gain access. By feeling the top pivot and moving the slide in and out I could feel the squeak. This location has no bushing and was seizing up. I applied a small amount of Roller-Chain lube on this one and the same one on the top. After letting lube to penetrate I ran the slide in and out and no more squeak

I have an 06 Horizon 40KD also with the HWH slides. I wonder if it has the same X frame mechanism? I'm not having any trouble with it but I'm trying to visualize where that X frame is located. My bedroom slide is on the driver side and the slide mechanicals are under the bed.

No, that's a different mechanism. The X frame is used on the smaller right-hand slide that starts at waist level and goes up to the ceiling. The 'X's are on each side behind the wood trim.
