That is next up on my agenda. I have heard some occasional sqeaks. Also wondering if people spray anything on the rubber seals to extend their life?

Factory techs recommended & use Pledge furniture polish (the cheap dollar store imitation works just as well) on all rubber seals throughout the RV. Spray it on a rag & wipe all around the seal, dirt won't stick to it & cheaper than RV slide seal conditioner, been using it for the last 6-7 years & seals look new.

When you run your slides in and out, it doesn't hurt for it to "click" or grind a couple of times, as much as people hate to hear it, it is part of what makes your slide out systems stay in sync on both sides of each slide out. Be very careful about "adjusting" your slides, if you don't know how to do it, it can make matters worse. If you aren't certain or comfortable, take it to an RV service center where they will make sure that it is properly aligned up, down, left, right and diagonally. It is a lot cheaper to take it in and get it fixed then to have someone come out and fix it where you are located.

Actually mobile technicians may be cheaper, faster & do better quality work as their business depends on it. To me even if it cost a bit more it's better than it sitting behind some dealership for several months waiting it's turn all the while your payments haven't stopped.
