White lithium food style grease , silicone style or a blaster.

Thanks

You want a dry lubricant so dirt and debris doesn't stick to it.

I use this stuff:

Do not use any style spray greases unless your slide particularly calls for it. (not seen many)
Always use a dry lube so dirt and road debris doesn't stick and contaminate the slide mechanism.
Here's what I've used for several years.

The lubricant recommended by the OEM for the slides on my TT is CRC Power Lube with PFTE, available on Amazon.com.

X2. And it's cheaper than most brands that specify 'slide lube' and is the same stuff.
