Slide Lube

Any others out there with first hand knowledge of this maintenance matter?
Thanks and here is to a great 2014 camping season!
Finally got around to reading the manual again. What I found was in the Lippert slide mech manual. It specifically stated not to lube the mechanism. It does not really make a lot of sense as there are many great dry lubes out there. I have noticed my slide is squeaking a little this year so I may do a little research and give it a try.
Spring Break was a huge success again this year. Garner State Park was really hopping at the weekend dance at the pavillion. Loads of fun.
Here is to a really great camping season!

Hey rabraz, off topic, but I saw you mentioned Garner. I grew up in Uvalde so Garner was a weekly thing for us back in the day. How was the water flow?

Frio is flowing about the same as the last three years. Good enough to keep a line at the rope swings. Tubes float but have to portage a few areas. Really need a couple tropical storms to blow through the gulf and dump a couple weeks of heavy rain.
Still a good time was had by everyone. Thanks for asking Grooveman.
Here is to a great camping season!

Hey I have a question for you guys. I am having issue with birds making nest in the coupling area of the hitch. Do they make covers for that? I'm concern if a bird gets in there something else like a snake my go in there after the bird eggs. I think there was a conversation about this before on the blog.

They do make pin box covers but personally I have not seen them and not sure if they would keep the birds out

I have a 356 but have & would not put a goose neck adapter on it at least until the warranty runs out. It has a very heavy pin weight & will put a lot of stress on the frame which is not designed the same as a goose neck.. I went the opposite way & have a car hauler with a fifth wheel hitch.
