Under the floor, when extended, you should see four or five nylon type rollers on a big slide. The smaller slides have less rollers.
My big slide has the rollers hidden behind the rubber seal where it seals the floor bottom to the side of the rig. A small hook or screwdriver will expose the rollers. My small slide doesn't have this seal so the rollers are easily seen from beneath the floor.
I use a dry spray silicone lubricant. Many suggest a dry lube as opposed to a wet lubricant, i.e., WD40. I have used WD40 and haven't noticed any dirt accumulation as some have suggested will happen.
