2011 slide needs Lube but how????

I have a 2011 26RLS Jay Flight I need to lube the rails but they are covered [see pic below]. My dealer says to spray lube on the outside,I know that is not right as you can see in the pictures that the rail covers never had lube on them.There are no access points under the trailer. Do I have to cut holes in the under belly to apply the lube????? Thanks for any info Click image for larger version

You want to use "DRY" silicone on the slide bars. You do not want to use any kind of grease that will collect dirt/grit. You do not have to get into the underbelly.

I sprayed mine with a slide lube it was a grease base and ended up with grease skid marks on my carpet, so don't make that mistake, spray it in the right place. I still don't know where that is though.

With the slides open, Wipe all the grime and grit off the extended bars. Then spray a light coat of silicon dry lube on them. Wipe any road grit from the slide gaskets and walls.

Also spray it on the slide gaskets under and on the side walls.

There are many products called silicone dry lube. I purchase mine at Walmart or auto stores at the lowest price I can find.
