LW ... I have had slide toppers on every RV we owned with a slide out... worth every penny.. keeps debris like leaves, pine cones, small twigs off the membrane roof of the slide and possibly damaging it... only downside is they can collect water during a rain.... I just run the slide in and "dump" the water and then run the slide back out...
as far as lube... I keep the outside walls of the slide waxed real well and spray the rails and gears with WD-40 peroidically... I would avoid any heavy or greasy lubricant that can collect dirt.... not JMHO... recommended by the dealer...
