Are you level? I couldn't get the slide out if our '99 wasn't level.

Not sure, but does your unit have a locking bar on the slide out? If not, you can manually extend the slide by finding the slide out motor, turning the motor mounted lock and then use a wrench to turn the square tube that runs to the gears. Or, is your driver's seat moved forward? Sometimes there could be an interlock that will not allow the slide out to move unless you move the driver's seat forward so it clears the slide.

Can be an issue if not level, or either not on shore power or engine running

I hate to state the obvious, did you check to make sure there were no obstructions to the slide? Did this a few times myself.

Coach level, parking break on, coach battery disconnect connected, batteries charged?

Also make sure you haven't sheared the pins. If both are sheared you will hear a noise but nothing will happen. Mine (the pins) had made the holes in the square tubes into egg shaped instead of a round hole. I would shear a pin on a regular basis. I removed the drive shaft and cut off about an 1 1/2" and redrilled it.

I went ahead and drilled both ends just in case I was ever in a location without the tools for the job. Now I can just take it apart and turn it around if needed.
