Slides on Wildcat Maxx 262RGX

Does anyone know what manufacturer and model of slides this Fiver has?
I have searched all over the internet and this site with no luck. I have been calling the dealer like twice a day for a while now so I don't want to bug them again. I have not taken delivery yet and I am trying to learn about what I need to maintain them.
There is a small slide up front in the bedroom, and a large slide for the living room / Kitchen.

Once I know what the slides are, I can read up on what materials Iíll need to lubricate them (and the best way to do so).

You know you may be working far harder then you need to most of the slide maintenance is generic. A good slide lube and slide seal protectant and you should be fine.

agree with Seadog, I have exact same unit and haven't had to lube them yet.

Slide info

You can call Forest River customer service and get all the info you need. I too needed to know who made my slides as well as other information and they were very good to send me all the manuals I needed.

Good morning,
The slide mechanism in the bedroom is a Schwintek in-wall slide and the larger living room slide is a Rack and pinion. If you visit Lippert Components the leading OEM and Aftermarket RV Parts and Accessory Supplier there are lots of videos and manuals on their maintenance schedules and recommendations.
Thanks,
Wildcat Steve
