Lubricate upper slide seals

We have a full wall slide on our coach and am trying to find a good way to get 303 or Armoral to the center of that long slide. I thought about using a pump sprayer like you use to spray bugs or weed killer. If any one has a better idea I am open for suggestions. Thanks
Harry

Bought some PB Blaster silicone for another purpose and found it sprayed out about like wasp spray. Shop Blaster 11-oz Silicone Lube at Lowes.com
Decided to try spraying our long slide (18'?) top seal by standing on a ladder and leaning in from both sides while holding up the slide topper. It reached the middle from both ends and I don't see where silicone overspray onto the fiberglas top of the slide could hurt anything.

Thanks for the information. If sprays like wasp spray (18') that would be great as the full wall slide on my coach is roughly 28 to 30' long. Our motor home is a HR 45'. But I am going to look the product up and see if it works as you say

What about soaking a rag and long pole to wipe.
I was thinking that is what I did but the length was only about 8-10'.

Spraying 303 would work because it doesn't hurt anything else, even if you don't wipe it off. I use on my whole coach top to bottom.

I pull the slide about half way in. Then from inside the mh, reach over the top of slide and apply lubricant to both sides of top seal.

I have used this silicon spray for several applications. It sprays out in a very controlled manner and will project 10-12ft in a straight line with the straw on.

Another great slide lubricant is talc powder. Spread on top of slide, move slide in and out.

Aerospace 303, like Armorall but much better for the stuff you put it on.

Thanks miramachi for the tip. I was a little skeptical at first but got a couple of cans and I was able get my arm far enough under the awning topper and was able to lubricate the entire full wall slide. Thank for the information
