lube the slide seals

My slides seem to have 2 wiper seals at least on the sides. So how do I lube the 'inside' portions. With only one seal I would spray it on from the inside while the slide is in, then extend the slide and spray it on the outside.
But I can't figure out how to spray it on the 'inside' of each seal.
Thanks.

I use a microfiber cloth and spray it on the cloth. Pull the seal back and run the cloth down the inside and outside with the slide about half way open. I know they say to not stop the slides when going in and out, but how else could you service the inside wiper seal?

The reason I use a slide seal spray is to protect the outside ones from the sun. We've had several of our rigs get over 10 years old and never had an issue with an inside one.

DQ, I didn't know they have had double seals for that long! My first rig was a 2006, so that is well over 10 years, I guess.

My kitchen and BR slides don't have much access to the end of the slide - cabinets in the K and walls in the BR. But I guess if the most concern is for the outside damage due to sun, I may just treat the outside and do the best I can inside.

Same here, I don't do the insides....they'll never see the sun.
