Lubricating Slides

What is the best method to do this and how often should it be done.

When I was at the factory this past July, they sprayed a dry lube on both rails of our LR slide.
Hate to say I forgot the name, but you could probably just call the factory and get a name from Ken or Dan. There's probably several brands out there. I think the big thing is to spray them with something that won't attract dust and dirt.

At out last rally, there was someone who mentioned that they'd been using some spray lubricant, and it just gummed up the slides. When they took their rig to the factory, Dan told them, "Just use the stuff we gave you."
So I'd definitely recommend the "Call & Ask" routine. ...maybe you could even pass along their answer?

It is when questions like this come up that I wished that someone from the factory was monitoring the website and providing an opinion. I suppose that those with experience on the road could do the same but when questions seem to have "call the factory" as the answer, one wishes that the factory was on top of providing the answer in this forum. Just my humble opinion.

The slide bar gets shot with silicon spray before retracting.

The screws get greased at the zerc fittings most years.

The chains get lubed with bicycle chain spray while DW operates the slide.

Excellent response. You are correct all the way around.

Not all slides use chains, but there is some mechanism that needs grease.
