slide will not close

We have a 2006 28ft flagstaff fifth and opened the slide and now it will not close. It sticks on the top and the bottom tries to close but it`s like it pushes up.

My 2004 Flagstaff 5th wheel had the same problem. We had to gently push to get the slide to go out or in. I purchased a can of slide out lubricant at Wal-Mart and sprayed the teeth and gears under the slide. We worked the slide a few times and it seems to be OK.

Are the seals sticking? If so they need lubricatede as well. I use a silicone lubricant on these to keep them from sticking.
