slide out motor assembly clicks and will not move slide without help

My slide out will move with ease with external help. I cut socket to fit on my drill motor and the slide out does not bind. The motor assembly turns but just clicks. Where can I find a new motor assembly.
The trailer is a 2005 Flagstaff 32ft. We use it once a year when we go to Florida for three weeks.

Yogi, I am now having the same problem with my slide. The slide motor is turning (there is electricity) but there is no "catch" to the slide. The slide does not go in or out. How did you get your problem resolved? Thanks.

Slide out motor clicks

I got a 3/8 inch drive socket that just fits over the manual crank shaft that sticks out of the motor. You have to cut a slot in the socket so the pin on the motor shaft will fit into the socket. I have a 1/2 inch electric drill and attached the socket to the drill motor and the slide out goes in and out OK.
I am still looking for a motor assembly to replace the one that doesn't work.
The socket is only a temporary fix.

Sounds like it sheared the bolt from the motor shaft to the drive shaft.
