In the past, I've used the food grade silicone spray to lubricate the bottom on the slides and various other items. Food grade silicone is expensive and difficult to find. I've found a great substitute, Jig-A-Loo, that is cheaper, contains no oil, does not stain, no drip, etc. I purchased mine at WalMart -- Home Depot also stocks.

Chief, you're right. Just got a can and applied to my slides. I noticed that in the cold weather my slides move quicker.

Thanks for the tip!

'Rockin' I think that it was in the automotive section -- along with the normal spray lubricants, etc.

Chief: In the "topic" portion of the article it quoted for "INSIDE". Am I looking to deep into this or is the jigaloo good primarily for inside the coach as opposed to the slides OUTSIDE MECHANISM??? Thanks... bill

Chief, I'm sure it was my confusing way of asking a question and to a nasty head cold. Yesterday when I went onto the IRV2 Forum, I clicked onto the General Discussion. There I found the Topic "Slide-Out/RV INTERNALlubricant. The word, "INTERNAL", threw me. I suspect know that I removed my head from a dark place that the use of the jugaloo spray could be used on all moving metal parts of the slides under the coach. If I am correct, forgive this old and for the moment physically ill senior and confirm my new understanding Thanks for your reponse and courtesy.... bill

Bill,
I see the light My bad young man -- I added the word "internal" in the topic to emphasize that Jig-a-Loo could be used inside RVs without causing any staining, odors, residue, etc. Please attribute my brain-fa*t to old age and senility.

Chief,
YOU BAD! This may be subject to putting you on probation! Old age and senality works for me too! Ha. Looks like I'm startin' in early.
