Slideout Grease Fittings

While rearranging the storage compartment I noticed that there are grease fittings for the slideouts. I looked through the owners manual to find out which grease to use, but couldn't find out any info. Has anyone here greased theirs yet and what grease did you use?

Where are they located? I have not seen any on ours and there is no mention of it in our materials from Lippert. I suppose you might have a different brand mechanism than ours though. I would guess a good lithium grease would work well.

They are located under the floor of the kitchen slideout & the sofa slideout. They are visible from the underbelly storage area. It appears that there are two arms that are mounted under the flooring that keep the slideout traveling straight by being attached to a rod in between the arms with a bearing & grease fitting at each end of rod. The 2 slideouts for the bedroom are smaller & I haven't found grease fittings on them.

The slideout manufacturer is HWH. I looked around on their website, but couldn't find any helpful info.

Tmmar have you noticed these grease fittings on your kitchen & sofa slides? I saw where your MH is a 2008 also.
