Rockwood/ Flagstaff Slide Work Goshen

I just had both slides maintained by Rockwood Techs at the Goshen Rally. A couple myths dispelled on proper maintenance.

1. Lube the tracks and gears with white lithium grease, just like I have been doing
2. The wear blocks are not required on the inside and cause more issues. Our super slide with the Kitchen works just fine now that the blocks are removed. No more grabbing or or jerky movement.
3. Grease the gear packs white grease, the end of travel gear grind doesn't hurt a thing.
4. Clean dirt off the gears and tracks annually and re-grease
