Information on Slide Outs...lubricant type, where, etc?

Hello--

After reviewing my owner's manual, I did not find any information on the slides in my 2016 Timber Ridge 280RKS. It has a large main slide out and a much smaller closet slide in bedroom. I believe they are two completely different slides.

I would like to review what maintenance is needed, schedule, lubricants recommended by manufacturer of slides, and what areas on slide should lubrication be applied.

Any assistance with this is appreciated.

My dealer recommended Thetford slide out lubricant for the rails and gears. Not supposed to collect dust. Also Thetford rubber seal lubricant for the seals.

Spray it on the gear rack and inner seals. The outer seals I use 303 Aerospace Protectant.

Are there any manuals available for the two different slides? My trailer did not come with these manuals.

1. Schwintek (closet slide)
2. Main Slide (of which I am not familiar with its name)

Thanks
