Lubricating slide 27HFS?

Has anyone done this yet? I went to do it and other than the tracks on either side of the slide, nothing is exposed. the last couple of times it sounded kinda squeeky when rolling in and or out

I would think the only thing you can lub is the tracks

I think there is some rollers under the bottom of the slide that it rolls on.

Thanks JR, I was only considering the nylon gears to the aluminum rack. I have to get that lubricant. That also got me searching youtube for other Lippert presentations; manual override the slide is also on there.
