To answer the original post
Dealer sold me two products
The foam lube for seals mentioned above
An anti corrosion spray that comes out thick like spray grease and drys a light brown color that is used on gears and tracks
I'll get the name of the products they are in the unit at the dealer for other service

Is there any brand of slide lube that works any better than another? Looking on amazon there are quite a few CRC, Liquid Wrench, PB Blaster, Camco, 3M, Thetford, Blue Works the list goes on or all they all about the same.

The best dry lube spray that I have found is graphite gray for your gears or CRC lithium white would be my second choice. You can't put any grease type or liquid due to it will attract dirt and then you could brake a gear tooth. Has to be a dry lube. I think the graphite works the best but cost the most per can but will last longer and seems to me makes a smoother ride when extending or retracting. the spray foam as mentioned above is good stuff for the rubber, I don't like the gear lube that RV stores sell. But that is just me and my own opinion.

That is perfect for your unit, make sure you lube that sprocket and all 4 sides of the ram. That's cheap for a gal. of 303, that stuff works great. They were selling it at the Goshen Rally for 50.00. Last time I bought a gal. it was $65.00. They must have seen me coming.....
