Lubricating slides

We were told to lubricate the slide mechanism on each of our three slides. Do the outside from under the slide and do the inside from inside the compartment directly underneath the slide. Works for two slides. But what about the bedroom slide? It's sealed underneath on the outside. We raised the bed and removed the center board and can see part of the mechanism but we're really not sure what should be lubricated under there. Any ideas? Can post photo if need be.

Your slides need no lube only thing needed is some talcum power in nylon sock hit against the rubber seals so they do not stick.

Hi jillie,
007 is correct, do not lube the slide mechanisms. If you need another opinion, contact Newmar Tech Support at 800-731-8300.

I'm hearing: do not lube slide mechanism (not gears or rollers) and use talc on the slide seals (not any preparations).

The bedroom slide makes screeching noises as it is extended. Starting about half-way out. Sounds like something that should be taken care of. I thought lubing the gears would fix it. Hmmmmmm.

Lubing will attract dirt. It also may lead to leaving marks inside after repeated opening/closing. I've also been told by Newmar not to lube.

Take a look under bed and make sure you have nothing caught between bed and floor.
With the bed lifted up and cover off the motor and square D shaft observe and see if something maybe loose or chafing as it moves.

Will be making a trip back over to the MH in a few day. Will check under the bed, check gutters, try cleaning water residue, and search for that darned battery cut off switch again. This MH could keep us pretty busy.

You should have a battery cut off switch with led display in your tank overhead display area. I know of some DP's have a large switch near the battery bank in compartment near batteries.
