1997 Fleetwood Mallord Manual Slide

We got an offer to buy a newer built deck with the condition that we take the camper as is with it. It all had to be moved. It's been sitting in this spot since 1999.
The slide is the good old fashion elbow grease push and heave your guts out. No electronics or hydraulics.
We got it in; but, we can't figure out what holds it in place to move / travel with it to the new location.

Any suggestions on how to do so without damaging the camper? This camper is in really good shape. The only negative is this manual slide.

Basically you can use 2x4 to use as stops on the inside.

Since your Fleetwood is not a Forest River product and this forum is primarily for owners of Forest River products, you might not get specific information for your Mallard. I don't think any Forest River product had a manual slideout.
Possibly some member here may have owned one.
