Slideout, seals, stab jacks, squeaky doors, steps, hinges....pretty much everything that moves! and a little goes a long way!

Hydraulic or Electric?
Lippert Master Towable Manual (Googleable):
hydraulic - "moving pats. They can be washed with mild soap and water. No grease or lubrication is necessary and in some situations may be detrimental to the environment and long term dependability of the system."
electric - "Note: Do not lubricate rack or pinion gear teeth, lubricate drive shaft only. Note: LCI recommends Mobile One Fully Synthetic 10W-30 Motor Oil to lubricate gear pack."
