Unhappy problem with 36B2 bed room slide

Got a problem I'm need to get addressed fast because we are scheduled to leave for AZ in 4 days. We have a 2011 Ceder Creek 36B2 and I opened the 4 slides this morning and with the bed room door closed I couldn't see it, but the bed slide opened at the bottom and the top stayed in place, I opened the bedroom door and seen what happened and closed the slides right away. I re-opened them again and the same thing started to happen. I walked over to the bed frame and pushed the top out, it just moves freely pushing on it. The slide will open but I need to push the top out as it's opening. All the pulleys, cables or what ever that moves it is all unclosed except for under the bed and I can't see any thing lose or undone under there. (except for the wood framing on the bed frame)
This may be something to do, The wooden frame under the bed has come apart and the two side trim plywood have come off. The bed frame will not come out away from the chest at the foot of the bed. After I get the slide out all the way I have to push the bed back against the head board.
If I were to put all that back together with screws will the head board and bed move with the slide?
Any reasonable help or suggestion would be appreciated.
What could cause this in the first place? Ice on the top of the slide? The other 3 opened with no issues.

ahhhh, no bites on this thread. I got it all fixed today. I had to take the mattress out of the bedroom, no easy task, then take the frame all apart and remove all those stupid staples, then used gorilla glue and screws to put it all back together. Then had to use a hydraulic jack to straighten the hydraulic gizmo that moves the slide. That had quite a bend in it, and the locking nuts on the big screw were loose and had moved way off kilter. It's all done and all works again. I'm wondering after seeing how all the parts were loose and those stupid staples is why it happened, the ice on the top of the slide was what it needed to all brake apart.
Took most of my day but it's done and we're all set for a departure Sunday morning for the South/West.
