Jacking up a slide out

I have a mobile guy coming tomorrow to try to repair my slide out. We need to replace a wear pad on the inner arm and I think we will need to remove the arm to press in the wear pad. I imagine we will need to jack up the slide a bit to release the pressure on the gear pack so we can remove it. Can anyone tell me the proper way to jack the slide. I just want to make sure my mobile guy doesn't do anything wrong. The slide is about 9 feet long and is the dinette side so no fridge weight. Any tips or know how is appreciated. I could nothing on line.

Ideally you want to run a beam the width of the slide and jack both sides evenly. At the very least, you want to use some sort of substantial pad (think 2x10) against the bottom of the slide under the wall, and jack there.
