This article provides Newmar, as well as vendor/supplier, recommendations for lubricating slideout seals.
If slideout seal lubrication is necessary, the slideout seal provider (Clean Seal
) recommends using a silicone-based spray or water-based 303 protectant on the rubber slideout seals. They state this will not hurt the seal. They also stated that baby powder could be used but would need to be applied frequently, as it would wash away. The silicone base spray would last longer and would not need to be applied as often. Newmar recommends bi-annual treatment of slideout seals.
