Slideout problem

Everything was going so well to !!!!! FR3 30S/ Front slide out. On the backside of front slideout toward the bath there is an accordion affair / maybe for wiring. When I extended (tried) this accordion did not slide or contract toward bathroom. What do I do. Is there something that contracts this or it suppose to just slide in manually. Looks like one of rotating pieces popped out or broke also.

You are most likely talking about what they call an E-track. These links will sometimes pop loose and can be snapped back together. Other times they will break. I had an issue where the link did not want to climb up the wall and would cause the track to bind and eventually snap. Try wiggling and pushing on the track as the slide moves out. Once out they will usually come in without issue.

It recesses into the cavity behind the toilet, the little step. I believe its just the wiring needed for the slide sensors (pressure switches), lights and outlet under the dinning table. I can't remember if you can pop that cover off in the bathroom to get better access to those links.
