I have used Slipit Sliding Compound for years.
It can be had with or without silicone, I used the latter for the top of my tablesaw and jointer back when. Use it today on old furniture with wooden drawer slides.
Safe for use on wood and metals including aluminum.
Probably have to order it online but you may find it local.

Any lubricant that starts as a fluid will attract and trap dust and dirt, making for an exceptionally effective grinding paste. That you do not want anywhere near delicate slide mechanisms.

Best to find a dry wax lubricant, in stick form, that you apply with your fingertips or a wooden stick. Tracks will nicely hold the wax exactly where needed, no dripping of oils or silicones that can stain fabrics or wood.

Liquid lubricants are best saved for use on chains or hinges with pins that are impossible to access without soaking.

When I had my Colman/Fleetwood. The manufacturer recommended a silicone spray. Used it for years and had no problems.

The silicon sprays I have used are dry within seconds. Never had any issues of it turning into a grinding paste. The slides always worked nicely.

It's OK, really. On my StarCraft the powder sort of "disappeared" leaving the tracks slightly slick.
