310DS Living room slide does not move

The living room slide on our 2007 Coachmen 310DS does not move. It makes a continuous clicking sound. A youtube video can be seen here.

I have tried it both while plugged into shore power only and with the generator only. The same clicking sound and no movement under both conditions.

Thanks very much for you help.

Slide not moving - more information.

I have a 2007 Coachmen Mirada. I believe it is a Venture Mfg slide since the gear box is stamped with Venture Mfg. Serial number 071005011519. The motor looks like a Mamco Corp BP-12-135. The living room slide out has stopped moving. It makes a click, click sound. The control panel has a manual override toggle switch and I am really hoping that somehow it is stuck toggled at manual override but I doubt that. An RV shop believes that it is the motor the needs replacing. I am wondering if there is a way to check the motor without simply replacing it. Or is it electrical? I have seen posts suggesting the motor may not be getting enough power from the battery. I have tried it plugged into shore power and with the generator running but in both situations the slide makes a clicking sound.

Thanks very much,
