Slide Lube ??

Finally got my slide working , but not great, sounds like the motor is really straing. I cleaned all the old grease/lube off the rails and worm gear with brake fluid and reapplied a teflon base grease. Was that the correct thing to use ?

Grease is gonna attract dust and dirt...walmart sells a spray slide lube that works well for me...about $12 a can.
I'd get the grease off.

Not sure what you mean by "straining." There may be another issue.

Anything sticky will attract dirt and sand and cause problems. Best thing is dry lube. Some info. here.:The RV Doctor €“ Correct Care & Maintenance of Your RV Slideout | Good Sam Club News

Protect All Slide-out Dry Lube Protectant is a popular lubricant and available just about everywhere.

On the straining noise, perhaps this info. also from the RV Doctor will help: http://www.rvdoctor.com/2010/11/noisy-rv-slideout.html

Dry graphite spray lubricant is recommended for my slide.

Dry Lube

Most anything that say's dry-lube is ok. Bought some stuff called garage door spray lubricant at Home depot. Say's leaves a dry tack-free film that wont accumulate dust and dirt. Made by B'laster
