Hi my name is***** the slide was bound from a bloom stick and now it moves but with noise from the motor and gearbox it points to a problem with the gears in the gearbox which is consistant with possible damage from the force of the gears not being able to move the slideout. You will likely have to replace the gearbox and possibly the motor assembly as it likely got stripped and damaged.

If the Slide Room Fails to Operate: Check the fuse and auto-reset circuit breaker on the slide-out relay module. If the fuses and circuit breakers test okay, it will be necessary to manually override the slide-out mechanism. Follow the steps below to manually override the slide-out room. WARNING: DO NOT work on the slide-out system unless the battery is disconnected. Make sure the floor is clean before retracting the slide-out room. Manual Override Procedure: 1. The bedroom slide-out is located under the bed. Lift the bed and remove the access panel. The main slide and wardrobe motors are located inside the exterior storage bays under the slide-outs. 2. Remove 12 Volt DC from the motor by disconnecting the plug from the slide-out motor to the power supply. 3. Use a 1” wrench (for main and wardrobe slides or a ¾” wrench (for the bedroom slide) to turn driveshaft and retract room. 5. Once the slide room has been manually retracted, reconnect power supply. This is necessary to stop the slide room from moving once retracted. 6. Take the motorhome to an authorized repair center.
