Penetrating-Lubricating Oils. I have been using these products for years and they work great.

Lube

You could try TRiFlow. It's very thin, but works great not like a grease though.

I second that
I have been using Kroil for about 30 years since a friend gave me a can to loosen some rusty bolts. I think every mechanic in town uses it. It's better than PB Blaster and anything else they have tried.

I have used 3-In-1 oil for over 50 years and have had no need to change cuz I still have the 6oz can I bought in 1975.
A little dab will do ya!
But not on slide gears! Dry-Slide. Don't attract more dirt, eh?

Has anybody tried SailKote from McLube? (High Performance Dry Lubricants & Speed Polish for Marine & Recreational Applications - McLube)
Sailkote is a spay on dry lube that dries to a tack free hydrophobic coating that they claim lasts longer that PTFE or wax coatings. I used it liberally to good effect when I had a sail boat but haven't yet tried it on the RV. I used other McLube products industrially when I was working and the company has been around for a while. I am interested to hear if anybody has experience with it on their RV.

Not hardly. Spray the step joints and check it in 6 months and you'll see how much dirt is sticking. A good product, but very high priced for what it does. Recommended only means they got some money for listing it as "their choice".

Molyfilm, Lubricone, Slikene, Dryphite all manufactured by Industrial Lubricants. These are great products and can be used for all your lubrication needs. I have used each and everyone of the products that Kano Labs produces and can truly say no one makes anything to their equal.

WD 40 is a water displacement spray, that for a short time will lubricate, but evaporates. TRI FLO is a spray lubricant, but not a grease.
