Well I never had an RV with slide outs. Now I do. I mentioned to my lovely wife that I need to treat the slide seals. The response I received was along the line of "oh, well don't put something on that stinks"..... Now I have a small hobby machine shop and DW stays out of it because it stinks. So this is a clue. I have been looking at 3 (so far) slide seal conditioners. 3 in 1, Thetford, and 303. Now the Thetford had one review that said it "stinks" however I saw a can at the RV dealer and sprayed a little of the foam on the counter and took no exception. I know I can ask but then I would possibly end up with 3 or 4 perfectly fine conditioners that didn't pass the smell test. So if someone has been through this please let me know what you use. I'm only need a starting point. I was very hesitant about posting this but hey the only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.??

Lemon Pledge. It’s full of silicones, and it smells nice.

We have been using 3-in-1 RV rubber seal conditioner along with 3-in-1 slide lubrication from good ole Wallyworld, really rejuvenates our seals and doesn't have any strong odor that I can notice. I know that you are not interested in what a man thinks, I apply it every couple of months and DW hasn't complained, she is ultra sensitive to strong odors.

I've never put anything on my slide seals. The RV is 12 years old the seals don't look worn or deteriorated yet.

silicone spray, just did them this weekend. When you hear the slide pop as it goes out the seals sticking. They can stick bad enough to pull a hole in the seal, not cheap to replace.
