knob to operate slide out manually leaking hydraulic fluid now.

so a very bad day, everything went wrong. pulled slide in, door cabinet was just a bit jarred and the slide (opposing) hit it and the cab door got jammed on it. finally able to remove the busted part of the cab door. seems like there is gap now slight but there.

I can slide a weed whacker wire through that tiny gap. wanted to see if the slide out can go more in or if hitting the door messed it up. as our's is hydraulic and the opposing slide is last to open and close, we tried the manual operation where you turn the knob counter-clock wise to operate each slide independently.

ok, unable to even budge the knob, tried to turn it at the base and now hydraulic fluid is leaking, tried closing knob and the leak is slow but still leaking.

any thoughts? don't know if any mobile rv repair is open this time of the evening. ...
