If it's been slowing down over time chances are it's been starting to bind up. It finally got to the point where it blew the inline fuse. Check up near the tongue on the inside of the A-Frame, right about where it is welded to the main frame. There should be a couple of inline fuses. One is for the tongue jack and the other for slide. May even have a third for power awning.
Might be best to extend slide manually and then lube the dickens out of the slide mechanism before using the electric motor or you may just have a blown fuse again. Also check to make sure you don't have a piece of seal jammed in the bottom of the frame or a stray sock, etc, that got caught under the slide and is causing it to jam.
