Slide out

New member here, first 5th wheel owned (2014 Columbus 320RS). Had 5 motorhomes.
Same issues as others, soft floor, residential fridge loose, now living room slide won't go out. Sounds like motor running but gears slipping. Any ideas?

Check underneath the slide and make sure the pinion gear is rotating and makes contact with the rack.

Need to get under camper and remove vinyl barrier to expose slide motor & mechanism.

Finally got the running gear exposed. Room will not go out. Motor runs but clutch slipping. Actuator may be binding? Should I replace actuator and motor?

I have a 2014 gently used unit that I picked up last year. This is good information for the eventual failure in my 5'r. Thank you for keeping us updated on your progress.
