Default Front Slide Lube Point(s)

Had this question on the M380 thread for a while. Thought I'd ask a bigger audience:

Found a zirk fitting on the front slide mechanism. I assume there is one on each end of the front slideout.

Does anyone know what kind of lube is called for on the slide mechanism?

Also, anyone know the lube interval and the amount of lube one might expect to use?

Thanks!

Bob , I can t help you with your question , but Iam sure some of the 380 owners will have some thoughts .

I have wondered myself , the same question as to the LX/LXI slides . So now we have all slides involved . O and the 450

Bob, you do know that the slide on the M380 is not the same as the slide on the LXi? I hope the answer I gave in your original post was helpful. http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...882#post241882

I agree with what Robert said, there is nothing special about the slide for the M-380 (temperature, speed, load,etc.) a little bit of almost any grease should do the job.

Thanks everyone. I wanted to be sure no one knew of any special lube requirements before I try some "any grease" in there.
