fr3 slideout moving, loud noise, going over bumps

i sprayed the slide seals on all 4 sides on a new fr3 30ds. After doing so and drawing in the couch/kitchen table slide, while driving down the road the slide appears to be moving front of rv to back of rv when hitting big bumps. The cables all seem to be fine with proper tension, but i believe the rollers under the slideout got sprayed too and now are slick to the point that the whole slideout is slipping making a fairly loud noise when it moves. You can feel the vibration on the rv floor as you watch the slideout move front of rv to back back of rv ( about a 1/2 in max) all while hearing what appears the weight of the slideout bearing onto the white rollers "sideways".

i did my best to clean up that appropriate spray off of all non wiper sealing gaskets and all rollers underneath in hopes of creating more friction. im going to let it dry overnight and ill update tomorrow.

Does anybody know what that white powder is on the white rollers? Baby powder or something to give it a bit of grip to keep it from sliding sideways across the rollers?
