Lubing Schwintek slideouts

I saw the video on how to lube the coupler and gibbs. Does any one lube the rails or is that all the lube they need ? I saw a Thetford slide lube advertisement and they showed lubing the whole rail.

No you are not supposed to lube the schwintek rails. They tell you as much in the video about lubing the slide.

Also in my Axis, it is impossible to reach the gears from inside the coach - at least the ones near the bathroom wall. Even though the video says lube the gears from both sides, I emailed Schwintek and they told me that just lubing them from the outside was sufficient.

It is very hard to see where the parts are that they talk about in the video so we just spray based on the relative location to the rails.
