Slide and Level Jack Maintenance

New to the forum..we have a 2014 Jayco Precept 31ul, love it and want to take care of it. Leaving soon on an extended cross country trip, Oregon to East Coast and back.
Can't find maintenance info for slide outs or leveling jacks, nothing in owner's manual. Coach is 2 years old, it must need something for these 2 items?
(Suspicious me says no information out there so you have to take it to dealer for for service - no, that can't be true!)

Dealers will be happy to sell you spray can of slide out lube and rubber gasket protector.
Cannot comment on the leveling jacks as I don't know what kind you have..

I just brought mine home getting ready to do the same thing, I was told and watched a You tube video to use Baby Powder on a towel and liberally rub it on the rubber no need for expensive chemicals ! then use a dry spray for the gear NO Grease! Silicone spray for the levelers.
