Slideout woes!

Hi folks, our slideout has no problem going out.
When we bring it in it starts in, gets a couple of inches in, then starts the clicking like it's in or out. I have to push in on it for a couple of seconds, (While my wife pushes on the button) then it goes all of the way in.
Any ideas out there?
Thanks in advance.

Low battery power, slide mechanism needs lubrication, or the ever present out of alignment. Personally I would first get a can of dry lube and generously lube everything I could find on the slide mechanism. Then check to be sure the battery is fully charged and or plugged into shore power. Last I would get it to the dealer for inspection and maybe an adjustment.
