Travel Supreme slide lube?

Do the rails on a Travel Supreme require any lubrication like the slides on say a Winnie? My 07 Envoy channels do not appear to have kind of lube on them at all and they retract into a fitted steel channel.

If you have the typical rack & pinion slide, where a toothed sliding rail is moved by a geared motor, no lubrication is needed. In fact, most manufacturers recommend against it, since the lubricant picks up dirt that will cause more wear than if the metal is just left alone.

If you feel you must lube it, use a rapid dry silicone that does not leave a sticky surface.

We have a 2004 Travel Supreme, and when we questioned the noise that the slide drive mechanism made when it went in or out, the factory mechanic at Travel Supreme greased it with white grease in an airosol can. The strange noised disappeared, and I regrease them each year. I cannot speak to the potential problem of wear because of the grease holding dirt. That does not seem to be a problem with our unit.
