Slide seals

What do you use to keep your slide seals lubed and in good condition?
Thank you in advance for your help

303 does not. It leaves no greasy feeling and you can use it on everything for the camper even the rubber roof. It is spf 40 for your stuff.
I buy in gallon jugs since i use it on the camper, boat, and the truck.

On inner seals use the powder. An easy way to apply is to put powder in a sock. then use the sock like a powder puff. On seal on slide itself that is exposed to weather when open you can use dry Teflon, 303, or any DRY type of lubricant. Do not use a gel type or grease. Preferably don't use petroleum type of lube that leaves an oily film or a greasy mess that will attract dirt. Safe travels. ed

Protect All slide seal treatment is highly recommended out there by others. Readily available everywhere.

Slide-Out Rubber Seal Treatment - Protect All

Must be a dry lube for sure. Protect All also makes lube for the mechanical parts in a slide.

With having to wash and wax an RV and lube all the various outside items like slide, antenna, stairs, jacks, etc., I sure wish there was a Jiffy lube and wash 'n wax for RVs. You've gotta do all this stuff but sometimes it a chore keeping on top of it.

slide seals

I will look around for the 303 and try it. By the way do you use one of your DW's golf socks or yours.
How are your bald spots coming?

Thank all of you for your feedback!
