Lippert above floor slide issues

I have a 2009 Cherokee with two slides. I think it has a Lippert electric above floor slide. The last time camping I went to retract the slide and found the bottom of the slide was retracting but the top was staying out. I had to push on the top of the slide while the wife activated the control switch. Not sure what is going on. Anyone have any ideas would be helpful

You can verify which type of slide you have by looking at the slide box if there are rails/racks on the side wall of the slide box you have a Schwintek system if is nothing on the sides of the slide box then you have the thru frame system let the forum know which you have it will make a big difference in giving you possible solutions.

My slide mechanism is under the slide but looks like a schwintek and is not thru the frame and the owners manual says it's a lippert.

Dry seals

Try spraying silicone or other lubes suggested on this site on the rubber seals. The slide is just sitting free on top of the rails underneath. If the rubber seals are dry, they can drag on the slide causing the top to hang up.

It could be that the slide is out of alignment. Have a good tech check it out. And make sure that the next time you use the slides, that the unit is level before operating the slides.
