Slide out retraction issue

The living room slide out on my 2005 Bounder struggles to start sliding in. The motor is barely able to move it to the point where the slide out floor is raised up to clear the MH floor, sometimes it just stalls out at this point. Once it's past this part it works ok.

I'm not sure what the actual mechanism that raises it up looks like at the front end. Is there some point where I could add some silicone or other lubricant to help it raise up?

We used ProtectAll #40003 slide out dry lube on our balky slide. It worked......

I applied some of this to the part of the gears closest to the chassis when the slide was extended. Do you just use it on the gears? I'm wondering if there is another spot that needs attention. The front runners of the slides look like they have white nylon pieces that are pushed up to clear the MH floor. It's during this raising up part the the motor struggles, so I'm looking for a way to make that part easier.

If you can see where it starts to rise up and can get to it I'll try a dry lube or wax from a candle and see it it helps can't hurt anything unless the lube would stain rug if one is under it.

That's what I was thinking, except yes, that part contacts the carpet when it slides in, at least I think it does.

I'd like to see some sort of illustration that shows what actually raises the mechanism up when it starts to retract. All that stuff is covered up.
