Living Room slide won't extend past 1 foot.

2009 Cedar Creek 34 SATS.
Living room slide will only extend approx. 1 foot on bottom, maybe 6 - 8 " on top and then stops. Other two slides fully extend with no problem.
Hydraulic fluid reservoir is full and no apparent leaks. It worked good on one trip, next trip 3 weeks later it won't extend all the way. It retracts with no problems.
No apparent areas that would cause a binding problem.
Any ideas?

look behind the facing of the slide on both sides, something might have fallen on the floor behind the face plate and stopping the slide.

Slide room won't extend

Thanks for the reply.
I did check for anything behind the slide sides and it looks clear all the way around the slide.
I am going to pull the bottom panels under the trailer to see if anything is jammed up underneath the slide. It's too new to have a slide problem.

Can you extend the slides individually. If so, see if the big slide will fully extend then.

DCkoski - let us know what you see. If you can please takes a few pics. I'm curious how they hydraulic system is plumbed for the two slides.

Cheers

Good news. Evidently during my last trip out in Nov., I must have hit a branch or something that bent the small handle/lever on the end of the slide topper. When the slide started out, it only went until the handle engaged the bracket, then it was stuck.
I took the handle off, two small hex screws, and it now works perfectly.
I need a new handle since I think if I try to straighten it, it will break. But, I am going to try.

Thanks for your comments/concerns.
Have a Blessed Day!
