Slide Lubrication ?

Guess this a better question for Forest River, but you all are much more reliable. Should i be lubing the slide on our new 2015 Grey Wolf, if so , how ?

i have a can of Camco Slide Lube from my previous used TT.

Is it a Schwintec? They have a video on lubing the motor and drive gears.

Others say no lubrication because it attracts dirt.

My opinion is a dry lube for the gear racks because metal-to-metal is never good. But accumulated dirt in the gears is not good either....

Can't say that I was a big help on this one...

I used some dry gear lube I bought from NAPA... Worked great and doesn't attract dirt.

Dry lube on the rack gears but also lube the seals. I use silicon spray on the seals.
