My large slide has been noisy from day 1 and lubricating the arms, rollers, etc. didn't help. It has gotten quieter with time, and I've also found that the more level the TT (a quarter bubble makes a difference), the less noise it makes, but as we all know, it's not possible to get perfectly level all the time either.

All that said, I'm going to have the dealer take a look at it when I take the TT in for some other minor warranty work next month. Even if they don't do anything, I at least want it documented that I wanted it looked at.

I keep my slide arms clean and dry, spray down with a little silicone just about every time before I roll them in. I frequently clean mine with a spray tar and bug remover (diesel), then wipe it dry and spray with the silicone. We just got back from a 30 day trip out west and this kept my slides going in and out with no noise. I hate the supposedly dry lube that they sell, it gets gummed up pretty quickly, the diesel seems to clean all the gunk off and the silicone keeps it sliding well. That's just my two cents and my method.

I've put dry lube on the slide rails, and silicone on the rubber seals surrounding the slide.
Plus I put a coat of wax on the slide walls.
So far so good. the noises coming from the slide when extending or retracting have stopped. Hopefully if I keep up with the lube, the slide issues will be resolved.
Thanks for the tips!

I use dry lube on the racks and gears. Some creaking, and groaning is normal. Mechanical noises are very hard to describe, some are ok, some not, but you know when it's not normal or you don't know depending on how mechanical minded you are.
