Unusual slide noise

I have noticed in my two month old TT that when I move my slides in or out for about 10 seconds it sounds like it needs to be greased. Is this something I should be doing? Or is there to much pressure on the slide rails since it's a little off level (not to terribly bad (quarter a bubble)) thanks for the help

Mine does it too sometimes.

I recently bought a can of a spray lube specifically designed for RV slide mechanisms and it hasn't made that sound since.

CRC Power Lube with PTFE is recommended for slides powered by Schwintek motors.

It could also be the rubber "wiper" seals on the sides. When the seals and slideout are both dry, sometimes they'll make some noise as they're folding the opposite direction.

Thanks I will spray on the lube and see. I did just wash and wax my camper right before I noticed it so it could be the rubber seals
