Another slide out question

My MH has two slides and both are on the Drivers side.
The front one is probably 12 feet long and goes in and out fine.
It seems to seal fine too, but in the fully out position during last 2 inches the rear top end of the slide gets hung up. The bottom pushes all the way out.
I dont think anything controls the top so I dont think its jumping gears or anything like that. It doesnt make any unusual noise's.
I tried to push at the top while the wifey ran it out and it just acts like its catching on something. Any ideas?

Can you see across the top of the slide box, could their be something laying their stopping the movement (are you missing the cat)
You might try posting this on the Monaco owners forum. Also their is a slide seal cleaner and conditioner to keep the seals flexible, then check for rollers under the slide, might need some silicone spray on them. I also used some Mothers Carnuba wax on my slide box. that helped it slide easier, no squeeks. I took a cheep sponge floor mop and spread the wax on the outside wall of the slide, did not buff it, just left it thick.

Sorry but no pets. I will look on top again and make sure nothing is up there. Yea plan to put some wax on the slide unit and some corn starch on the seals to allow them to slide easier. Thanks

OKay so I looked this weekend and I cant exactly fit my fat head up in there but from what I could see it looks like the top stop is just a piece of angle iron that seats along the wall when fully extended. I felt along with my hand and I think maybe its bent like its twisted at the one end. Need to get a mirror and take a better look at it.
