Does any one lubricate the slide tracks. Mine squeaks really bad when going or going out .

I haven't yet, but have the lube to do it next time I get it out.

Slide out tracks

I got the stuff at the parts Dept of my RV dealer,that is a thick sticky lube and rust preventative (It reminds me of the chain wax I used on old motorcycles)
It smells awful but it goes on (brownish color) and stays on and the parts are as shiny as new.It glides in and out very smooth.I spray it every couple of months
Sorry I forget the brand but it's the Same Co that sells the spray on foam,rubber seal Lubricant
I recommend both products

Yes I use the CRC power lube that lippert recommends for the motors not greasy which will attract dirt in my opinion on the schwintec rails and I don't think it takes much

Thanks for the input. I will try some of the silicone type sprays on it and see what that does.

Dry lube's work well enough, but typically don't act a rust prohibitor.

Tried the CRC HD silicone spray. Ran the slide in and out a few times and still no change. Still squeaks and creaks going in and out. Then tried a dry lube spray and still the same . Cant figure where the noise is actually coming from, I find no places where it is rubbing or binding. It goes in and out fine just noisy. Guess i will keep looking.
