Slide Maintenance

Anyone ever do any maintenance on their slide tracks as far as lubrication? I never have but just wondered if it is plausible to put some kind of lubrication or graphite on the slide tracks to make them operate smoothly.

Any dry lube spray will be fine. Spray any rollers, slides and moving parts. It doesn't need to say RV or slide on the can.

Do it once a year. My slide is out for 4 months a year. I spray it before closing it up for the winter.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
