Slideout Misalignment on 1998 Overland

I've been trying to figure out what might be causing the slideout misalignment in my 1998 Overland Lorado motorhome. Overland is out of business and not too many out there, but the slide seems to look similar to other motorhomes of that era. The slide has shifted aft about 0.6 inches at the bottom but the top is still in alignment when the slide is retracted. The slide tubes seem to be rubbing on the aft side. Unfortunately, the construction of the baggage compartments and the fuel tank make it difficult to inspect the slide mechanism. I've tried pushing on the slide while extending and retracting but it made no difference. The slide works but I'm nervous it will fail in the future.
Any suggestions of things I can check would be appreciated (I regularly spray slides with dry lube).

Welcome Doug to irv2.
With out some pictures or more detailed description its hard to help you.
Some slides have rod stops, rails or cables and some do not require lube.
Here is a thread that may give you info on how to contact like owners of Overlands.
There is a web sit for Overland owners but most is discontinued.
