Campfun,
This is what I use to lube the slideout mechanism.

Frequency?

How often do you lubricate the seals? The slide drive gear?

I lube the rubber seals twice a year, minimum. I use the slide lube mentioned on the gears once a year.

I'd appreciate a little more specific information on my unit. It has three slideouts. Two of them have visible aluminum gear tracks at the top and bottom sides of the slideouts and the third one has only two gear track rails on the bottom of it that go through the frame. I lubed the aluminum gear tracks and the two gear track rails on the bottom. I could see no other ways to lube anything else. Did I do it right? No instructions anywhere that I've seen.

Is that just a dry lube? Silicon maybe?

Lube Type

It's the dry lube pictured above. I was surprised to see that it's a dark color. I was expecting white.

I have some graphite dry lube, just wondering if I could use that instead of another trip to CW.
