Are you referring to the rubber wipers or gearing and motors. A manufacturer of your mechanism if electric will help. Generally a dry lube that does not cause grime to adhere. If the wipers talc can be used. Teflon dry lube or silicone? Camco makes products for both applications. Just check on Amazon search. I clean the teeth on the gearing with mineral spirits, wipe clean then lubricate.

Most manufacturers do not recommend lubricating the slides. Check the manual for your slide.

That would not be Power Gear. Lippert is one of the few that say no lubrication but folks that are having issues with the Lippert systems debate that reccomendation. Reference Thor owners Plazzo threads.

From the Power Gear Manual:
  
 If the system squeaks or makes any noises it is permissible to apply a light            
coating of silicone spray or lithium grease to the roller and bearing sleeve I.D., removing
any excess lubricant so that dirt or debris do not build-up. DO NOT lubricate the
slide-out drive gears, gear racks, or roller OD as this will attract dirt / debris.

I stand corrected. Somewhat, I've always cleaned the tracks with a small wire brush and sprayed with silicone or dry Teflon. This does not absorb dirt while offering a minimum lubricated surface and preventing rust. I suggest this is correct preventative maintenance.
