It is OK, however if the Camco slide lube is black when dry it will leave an ugly mess. What does your owners manual recommend?

Could not find anything in the owners manual about it, it's a 2015 Grey Wolf ( Forrest River )

I would use something cleaner like a clear silicon spray.

Dry lubes shouldn't be a problem...you really can't see it once it's applied. Just wipe any excess off the fiberglass and let the dry lube do its job.

Agree, dry lube only. The wetter lubes will attract dirt and cause bigger problems
