One Source of Annoying Squeek Found!

My wife kept telling me she believed that the noise most annoying to me was coming from the slide behind her (passenger) seat. From the driver's
seat I wasn't convinced. So, today, after driving some distance, I ran that
slide out a few inches, and continued on for a couple miles. Sure enough...
the noise was completely gone! Now, I have to figure out just what to do
when the slide is in. I was never instructed to lock the slide...if that can be
done, how do I do it? Perhaps that would tighten it sufficiently to quiet the
noise. Anyone able to offer any help? Thanks, Larry

On my coach there's an arm at each end. Push them up until they go over center. They draw the slide tight against the gasket.

Try some silicone lube on all the rubber gaskets...

303 is recommended for slide rubber seals and slide should be locked slide does not sway in slide cut rubbing the seal.
What lucks do you have the manual, 12v, or the one that were a auto locking latch when slide is closed?
May need adjustment if not locking fully was this a used coach?

Another option Iíve seen for the seals is use a cloth glove, and fill it with talcum powder and just rub them down.
P.S. if anyone knows how to lub the seals in the center section top of those big slides, let me know.

Thanks, fellows! The rubber seals just may need a fresh application of
"303", which is the product I use. I'm more inclined to feel the locking
mechanism is needing an adjustment. I purchased my coach new, "007", and don't have the manual with me on this trip. What are your thoughts
on using the glove/talcum powder method...any harm? I'd like to know
if the "auto-locking" mechanism can be adjusted...and, if anyone has
done that to quiet the squeek?

I had the same issue( think). Check the lock and try a small piece of velcro on it. Notice where the lock contacts the slide. If the paint is gone that's possibly where the squeak is coming from. It was for me.

303 is the new thing now for slide seals, I would try using a pole with 303 sprayed on sock or glove, the power if got wet would cake up or jell and make a mess.
You locks must be the 12v type because the bar is standard according to the owners guide, with the 12v lock operated you may try a rubber door wedge behind the lock latch just do not force with a hammer, someone pushing on slide wall to rock and someone pushing the wedge behind lock latch.
Its another item on check list to do befoe moving slide out.
