Here's a You Tube video about slide seals:

Interesting video. I makes sense that the baby powder would prevent sticking. However I wonder if the baby powder will keep the seal maintained properly. I thought they needed something that would keep them soft and moisturized.....

I would think, as soon as you wash the exterior, the baby powder would wash off the seals.

I wash my rig just twice a year. It sits in a storage lot all winter long. After each wash I do a roof inspection and also inspect all the caulking around doors and windows. At that time I also re-powder the seals. Even after sitting in the rain and snow all winter, the seals don't stick to the side when first opened.
I figured if it was recommended by Newmar...it was good enough for me.
