Service Slides

In a recent post someone mentioned servicing their slides but not how. As far as I can tell by my RV info the 2005 Dolphin has electric slides. Do you service your slides? If so, how? No problems but looking to avoid any.

Thanks for any replies.

The most inportant thing is to clean and wax the outside of the slides and lubricate the seals. I do this by using a clean rag and silicone spray. Get the rag wet with silicone and reach behind the seal with the rag to lube the inside of the seal. You can just spray the silicone on the out side. If you have slide toppers you won't be able to get to the top seal completly but do what you can reach.

To me the lubrication of the tracks are the most important.

The tracks or rollers are made of teflon and shouln't need any lubrcation but if you do don't use anything that would attract dirt. When the dirt gets in with the lubrcant it turns int an abrasive and can damage the teflon.
