hydraulic, rack and pinion or something else.

I use the dry graphite spray on my rack and pinion.

On my last trip when I was opening the slide I noticed and heard the slide shake, make loud noise as if was to fall apart. And just now I try to open it, again and the same issue. Please advice if all it needs is grease, oil or service?

Thank you all for your help... [emoticon]


I assume you're talking about the slide on your 24RLS? It looks like a rack & pinion style. Simple lubrication may be all that's needed but first take a look around and underneath, inside and out, for any obstructions, open cabinet doors, debris, etc. Use a dry lubricant such as: Dry lubricant

Furthermore, LCI has a very nice smartphone app called "MyLci" with troubleshooting guides. You can also visit their website at: LCI Slideouts

Good luck and please be sure to let us know what you find out, it will help us all.

First thing make sure something hasn't got caught under the slide. I heard that sometimes thing fall during travel and slide or get kicked under the slide with it in and cause problems.If you don't find anything there get underneath the camper and have someone put out the slide and watch the mechanism and see if you can tell where the problem is.Wouldn't be a bad time lube while you there if that hasn't been done in a while.


X2 to this.

I check all around slides before extending, stuff falls and get caught under neath,
I really do enjoy the extra 50 sq. ft of living space, and the 11' wide living and dining room space.

You want to use Dry Lube on the slide hardware.

Are you sure it isn't just the rubber seals making noise against the slide? They can be noisy, and if they are bigger seals they can move the slide slightly when they flip out.
