Slide Lubrication & Maint Question

Looking for some opinions on lubrication of the slides on my 33DS 2019 FR3

My manual from LCI clearly states Do Not Lubricate Slide track, gear rollers.

Are there any parts of the slide outs that one should "maintain" like the rubber seals inside & outside? If yes, what would be a recommendation. Again my manual and dealer says NO to anything on the slide.

Id like to hear from the public on this an what you do to your rig!

Thank you

I remember a previous post of someone having cracked rubber around there slides. So I do the slide lubrication on the outside and the baby powder on the inside. Have not had a problem so far.
