Noisy squealing slide while extending/retracting

Folks, another question came to mind. When extending/retracting the bedroom slide I hear a squealing noise like a dry roller or bearing.
Are there such animals supporting the slide that needs to be lubed? Thx, Dennis.

Go to YouTube and search Rv slides, couple of videos there that explain how to lube your slide and what to use.

I had a new cable put the large slide month ago. Traveling this week, large slide was noisy when extending. Checked the rollers under the carpet. Found one at the back of the slide that was out of place, plus the nylon roller was split. Dealer sending me a replacement. In the meantime, got to get home. I'm going to glue and tape the roller in hopes that it will work long enough to retract. Any other suggestions?
