Slideout lube

We have a 2004 Dolphin 6320 by National RV. I have been lubing the underside of the slideouts with lithium grease to ease the stuttering when they are going in and out. Does anyone have a better suggestion as to how to make them slide in and out better?

Hi Seahag and . I've been advised not to use lithium grease on mine as it is a dust and dirt collector. I use silicone spray on the rails and worm gears. I've not had to do the underside of my slides.

Hope this helps and I'm sure others will jump in here to assist. You may also want to post this question on the National Rv forum here National RV Owner's Forum - iRV2 Forums . Good luck and come back often and tell us of your travels.

Welcome seahag,
I've been given the same advise as clifftail. If that doesn't do it you'll have to consult a more knowledgeable source than I.

Paste wax the bottom of the slide and use silicone spray on the drive mechanism.
