Squeaky slide out

We took our first trip from Mass to Florida with our 2017 Dutch star 4369.On the way there it was very quiet on the way home the full wall slide behind the driver seat was making all kinds a squeaking noise. I assume that the seal needs to be lubricated and was wondering what everybody uses if anything?

If it is the seal squeaking on its mating surface use baby powder or talcum powder on the seal. Even if it doesn't squeak using the powder prevents the seals from sticking or tearing during operation of the slide.

c92vette has it right, talc or baby powder is Newmar's official slide seal lube, nothing more.
