It looks like OP's switch is mounted down in the skirt area where the back side is exposed to all the elements thrown from the tires. Maybe a shield of some kind could be fabricated and waterproofed.

Mine was definitely the switch but a good lube job on those and the slides is a great idea. What are the recommended intervals for those items? I like the idea of dry lube. I use it on my woodworking tools and also on my fold out steps on the camper. They always work smooth and collect no dirt.
