Slide noise

Hello all I am the new owner of a 2013 Silverback 29re. I have not had a chance to use the camper yet just trying to get it ready for use. I have a question about the slides, they seem to have a lot of noise and vibration to the camper when they are coming in. My last camper only had one electric slide but did not make as much noise or vibration. Just checking to see if it is normal.

I have a 2011 and it seemed loud to me. after reading a few post here I realized I should use some spry dry lube. They stocked plenty at the Rv shop. I seemed to make a big difference.

Thanks for the info. Been busy moving stuff in. I guess the little extra noise would be normal because they are large slides on the back. Do you lube the rails with the teeth on the bottom.

Lube the rail with the teeth and the gear they roll on with the dry lube.
