First off welcome to the forum and the adventure of RVing. It kind of depends on which slide mechanism you have. I have shwintech slides and got the info on maintenance on YouTube. Keeping it clean is a big step, including all sides. Lubricating it in the proper way and the right components is also important. Inspect the seals and use conditioner on them regularly. When it's in make sure it seals to the side of the trailer and the same for when it's extended. You "should" have received the information on maintenance in you coaches documentation. If not, identify which mechanism you have a go from there. One other thought, Slide toppers are a great addition to your slide. Happy camping!!
