I'll go against what everyone here will tell you and say nothing. Of the people I know,none of them use anything. My bil's cardinal was 15 yrs old when it burned to the pavement last year,he never used anything and never had leaks. My son's Wildwood is going on 4 yrs old,nothing.Last summer I ask around in campgrounds and never found anyone that used anything. just sayin'...............

I just use a silicone seal spray. I tried the "use nothing" approach and the seals stuck. It came loose but pulled some of the skin loose with it. I use the spray now.

We've been using Aerospace 303 on last 3 campers. It has a UV protectant.

Just thought I mention on a side note, that I have checked the slide bolts on the "S" and they needed to be tightened. So, give that a look on your Spring check list.

Sorry, been put away for winter cpl months ago. But, when you open the slide there are two structural steel arms that carry the slide out. When you get a look under it you will see several bolt connections. The bolts are easily accessible and just put a socket on them to check for tightness. Discovered some of mine needed tightening. Good idea to use dry lube on the friction points while your under there as well.
