Nitro xlr slide out help

Unit is 2 year old, 2016 nitro xlr 305 and when living room slide is all the way out it seals but when I slide it in, the rear bottom is not flush and all 3 other sides are (meaning tops and other bottom.) this Just happened. And I hear a noise about 2 ft from sliding it all way out. Like a pop or slipping of gears, if this makes sense. Please help.
