slides

I have a 2008 Itasca Sunova and have read that the slides should be lubricated every 6 months. Have searched my owners manual and the Kwikii website and cannot see where I should apply the dry lub. Also I purchased a safety hand rail that is larger than the one that is on the motor home. It is the one that folds back during travel. How do I know if there is any electrical wires where I will be installing the new handle? I looked for coach wiring diagrams and cannot tell anything by that. Also, we live in the country and have had a field mouse or 2 visit our new home. I looked everywhere I could to find their entry and plugged where I though they might be coming in but did not work. I have placed cab bags and Irish spring soap throughout the home and storage cabs. How will I ever keep them out during winter storage? Thanks so much for any help anyone may be able to offer. I will very likely be back with lots more ?

In our previous MH I found that critters came in via the sewer and electric bay. They came in through the pass through and came in via the electrical cables. When it comes to winter storage I try to fill every spot I can find with steel wool. I put some bait in PVC pipes so that only the mice can get to it. Many swear by moth balls but I find the smell that is left behind seems to linger on and on. Do a search here and you'll find many good ideas to at least consider.

You're NOT supposed to lubricate the Kwikee slide mechanisms.

Thank you, I just told my husband the other day that I wondered if they were getting in there. Will check further. My sister and brother-in-law had their pop up nearly destroyed by rodents this past year despite taking every known precaution.

How about the rails? I read somewhere if it is noisy may need lube and that lubing also protects against rust.
