For RV Slideout Lubrication

Without adequate maintenance, the reliable functioning of your slideouts is not possible. According to Ken Freund, Slideouts need two kinds of lubrication.

  1. Slideouts and tracks should be taken care to be lubricated with a drying product.
  2. Periodic cleaning and lubrication or resealing of the rubber of gaskets and windshield wipers should be carefully maneuvered. To keep your rubber flexible, do the lubrication treatment every two months.

Against RV Slideout Lubrication 

Some people tend to say that RV Slideout Lubrication is unnecessary as they have experienced the aftermath of drying lubrications alone. This not only keeps the slideout moist but also attracts a major portion of the dust and dirt that the road covers!
Additionally, this is why some RVers advocate that people shouldn’t lubricate their RV slideouts.

  1. Interesting. I did not know you should lube them every two months. Do they make a special lube, or are we talking WD40? Maybe graphite? That can get messy. Silicone?
