Bedroom Slide out issue

Have a 2011 Cedar Creek with the slide out covers that have the medal cover that rolls up.

I took my RV for a test drive with my new truck slide outs closed OK.


When I returned I opened the slide outs and could tell something was wrong with the bedroom slide out. It was opening fine at the bottom but the top was not opening as far. So I closed it checked everything and it seemed ok.



Tried opening it again and the bottom of the slide out goes out fine but the top of the slide out if stuck will not go out at all. So I tried and looked at everything but top stuck against the RV. Only thing I can think of that would do that is the slide out cover will not open of slide out seal stuck against the RV.


Any ideas??

You might try have someone push out on the top of the slide while operating the switch and see if that doesn't free things up

Fixed it

Well slide out bed frame was ripped apart bad. Think it separated a little once before. The slide out bubble seal around 1.5 feet at the top had melted and was stuck to the RV side. So when I went to open it again it ripped the bed frame apart even more.
I took everything off the bed, removed the mattress platform. Completely rebuilt the bed frame. When I was about 3/4 done slide out would still open at the bottom but not the top. So I noticed the bed frame at the end was lifting off the floor. So after getting it all done and reinstalling the mattress platform I tried again. Now it open and closes A-OK. Should even work better after I get the mattress and bed pads back on as that is probably 50 more pounds holding the fame down.
Have pictures of before and after but can't add any pictures here.
