Sticking slide

When we left CT yesterday for MA, our main slide was hanging up.. It started as normal , then the top seemed to be stopping while the bottom kept going..

After several times, it settled in and was fine..
Looking at everything today, it all looks to be in order, BUT there is alot of black , binding marks on the side of the slide.. And the seals are very tacky..

My thoughts are that if i wax the sides of the slides , and recondition the seals i should be Fine?

If wally world does not sell slide conditiiner, what say the pros? Baby powder?
Inquiring minds want to know....

Service center recommends "Pledge" furniture polish on the slide seal, I buy the cheap imitation at Dollar General & have had no issues with slides sticking or seals getting gooey. Also periodically I spray all the gears, rams, all the mechanism under the slides with silicone spray, which I buy at wally world called "Slide Spray" if I remember correctly & has worked just fine & much cheaper & easier to find than the CRC.
