Coachmen 319MB slides binding

I have a 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun 319MB. The front slide is binding on one end. It got stuck in the out position at a campsite last weekend when this happened for the first time. If I assist by pushing/pulling while pressing the inside switch, we can eventually get it to move in/out. The motors appear to be working fine and I have lubricated the top and bottom slide teeth but it still is binding. Are there other locations to lubricate or adjustments that can be made?

Is there a manual override that I can move the slide with a socket or wrench? If so, where is the access point located? We are on the road again this weekend and need to get it fixed.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Are your jacks down and the rig level when you are extending or retracting the slide (assuming you have Jacks)

Thank to all for your help.* I did get the slide motors synchronized and it appears to be working properly now.

It is in one of the compartments on the driver side up front. It is in the ceiling part of the compartment and a little hard to see/read.
