Bedroom Slide Squeaks

My bedroom slide squeaks terribly when I deploy it and when retracting. I have tried looking under the bed, but do not see anywhere that I could possibly lubricate something. The outside of the slide underneath is all sealed and the tracks are not visible like my LR slide to be able to lubricate. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Dave..... That's irksome, ain't it? Tell me, can you distinguish between a metal on metal squeak, and a rubber on paint squeak? Could be your mechanism; could be your weather seals rubbing. Try wiping the seals with silicon spray. That'll protect the rubber and might take out the squeaking.

Bedroom Slide Squeaks

Hi John,
It is more of a metal to metal sound. I have washed my RV several times and used a combo of soap and wax, hoping that would make the slide motion easier, but still get the squeak.

I think my fathers 1970's van had a sticker on it that spoke to the squeaking while rocking.....

Sorry I couldn't help myself.
