Slide out binding

Hi all,
Brand new here and looking for a little help. I have a 2005 F37S. The rear slide out is binding and wont close. The rear of the slide seems to bind while the front starts to slide in. I dont want tweak anything and want to get into the shop but cant get the rear slide out closed. is there a way to close the slide manually?

Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear that you're having troubles with your slide.

You'll need to provide a little more info.

Is the slide drive electric or hydraulic? Is only one end of the slide moving?

If it is electric, the bolt in the shaft from the front to the rear may have sheared. If it's hyd., I don't have a clue.

Hi Dave,
I figured it out. Its a Hydraulic, the pin attaching the drive shaft to the rear gears sheared off. an easy fix!!!
