Cable slide out moves 16" then stops

My holiday rambler bedroom slide out was stopped by the washer dryer cabinet door when moving out. I retracted it, Then tried to move the slider out again and it stopped at the same position 16 inches out and went no further. I can retract it back into closed position, but it will not go any further out than 16 inches.
Any thoughts?

While you have the slide out extended go outside and check the tension on all four cables. My guess is you either broke a cable or it came out of the outside bracket.

The slide is probably extending crooked and binds. If you push on the side that is not being driven while someone operates the switch you should be able to extend it fully.
