You didn't specify what type of slide you have, but if you have a Lippert In-Frame slide Lippert does not recommend lubrication, just to keep the tracks clean of debris. Some folks use a dry film lubricant to ward off rust. The gear packs are pre-lubed and sealed.

There are a number of slideout-specific spray lubes. Even Wal-Mart has them or CW.

Brand name isn't as important as the fact it needs to be a DRY lube. Yes, all go on wet but if it stays oily/greasy it will pick up road dirt and things will end up worse than if nothing was sprayed on.

On my schwintek slide I used the WD40 Dry lube with PTFE, couldn't find the CRC Lube they recommended.
