Slide not sealing after I Goofed!

Help! I didn't have a chair in the right spot when I closed the slides and when the 2 opposing slides came in the recliner in the way pushed the drivers side slide out to where the bottom of the slide in the rear doesn't hit the seal. The front of the slide looks normal. What can I do to fix this, Hopefully an easy fix?
Thanks in advance

I don't know what type of slide you have but on some the motors reset when you put it all the way out again. Here is a link I found as well.

Is it a lippert slide? The tracks are flat, with a wavy looking pattern, kind of like a worm ate it's way thru wood.

Well after looking more closely it looks like the bracket from the slide frame to the arm the piston pushes out bent.
Gee its fun owning an RV! I learned another lesson, and at least it can be fixed
Thanks for the ideas.

Sorry about your mistake, no one is perfect and donít let anyone make you feel that you degraded them. Get it repaired, move on , happy RVing.

Happened to us too!

This happened to us when something was in the way of the two opposing slides coming in, the last slide in got a bent arm, looked just like yours. Thankfully it was on the backside of the RV and we made it home. Costly to get it fixed at the RV dealer somewhere between 250 and 275 if I remember correctly. Bad thing though, a few months later when insurance had to replace the seals on the same slide, it was out of adjustment and so we got charged again, I think it should have been adjusted on the first go round, when they fixed the bent arm. Learned my lesson about running the slides in for sure.

I am pretty sure they all have a manual crank. Might be the wheel lug device. Look for a hole in the side to poke the handle through. If that's there, then look for the handle.

Either a rack-and-pinion or a screw. With the R-P you can manually push the slide in (need big muscles). Not so easy with a screw type system.

Nope!

The Schwintek slideouts, which are quite common now, don't have a manual crank.

You disconnect both motors and push it in.
