What is this on? Which slide? And do you know if they are all electric or hydraulic on the power mechanisms? Get back to me with this info and I can assist you further. All followups are included in our fee.

1997 Salem. It is hydraulic. One side ( Right side looking at it from the inside) goes all the way out and seals fine. The left side is 3-4 inches from going out all the way

it has been fine until today. Operated it 4 o 5 times in the last month with no issues

Do you know whose system this is? Lippert or Power Gear? Does it have a single ram and two gear tracks? IF SO, it probably broke a roll pin on one side of the tracking mechanism. Can you attach a photo or two to your post?
