Slide Out wont completely seal opened.

A sever storm with large hail and possible tornados was coming so before taking refuge I decided to retract the slide outs. Now the living rm Love seat slide stops about 2 inches short of seating in and sealing. Any ideas? 2012 Wildcat 32ft 5th wheel.

Branch or some debris land on top of the slide? Only easily repairable thing that springs to mind.

Nope. When I extend it (open it) it will not completely open out and seal. It leaves about a 2" gap at the top, wobbles, and does not lock in and become stable. No debris.

Don't know if its hydraulic, electric gear or wire operated but without a doubt something is out of alignment or position adjustment. Look through your "owners material and see if you can determine who made the mechanism. Call them and describe what happened. Chances are they can help you esp. if you can understand how it works! Good luck. Phone call is cheaper than a service man......
