Question 5th Wheel Slide Outs

I have a 2001 Fleetwood Wilderness GLX and the LR Slide will not move. I checked the motor and where it connects to the rod where it turns to move the toothed rails there is a pin that protrudes and does not allow for more than a 30 degree rotation. What do I do now?

I suspect this has what you seek. replacing a slide mechanism shear pin. There is a shear pin at each end of the square tube where it attached to the toothed gear. If one end moves the other end doesn't, it's a broken shear pin. Do not replace the factory pin with a hardened bolt! Only use a standard hardware grade 3 bolt/no head marks. You want the cheapest part to fail first, thus the soft shear pins/bolts.
