I have a problem with my kitchen slide out. It must have went out cocked and hit the wall on the on the side closest to stove. It pulled the trim off the bottom of the slide out and damaged the wall. Does anyone know what kind of slide out mechanism is on my camper and who the manufacture is. What would cause this to go out cocked, and how do I prevent it from happening again

It is an LCI slide mechanism (this manual should be in your documentation package). The extend/retract motor acts on one end of the slide through a long threaded rod. On the bottom of the support arms, which slide in channels through the frame, are gear racks and there are pinion gears riding on each that are connected together via a square tube to transfer the position of one arm to the other.

However, it has been known for the pinion gear to fracture or lose a tooth or two - they are made via a compressed metal powder method and not machined from billet. I haven't heard of too many failures recently but it was a topic a year and a bit ago... a search may turn up more threads.
