slideout is not sliding evenly

A very new member ( and new RVer) and did search for help with this problem. Lots of wonderful advice, but can't quite get a handle on finding the solution. So, I apologize if this a repeat of something already addressed.

1994 Damon Escaper - one slide-living room. Was working well, and now - not so much. One side drags - going in and out. When going out, there are deep depressions in the carpet - something isn't quite right. It's a hydraulic system powered by 12 volt. Any help you can offer would definitely be appreciated !

Slide adjustments are different from one slide manufacturer to the next. Does your slide control , or the slide hydraulic pump have a brand name on it ? Maybe Lippert ?
Finding the brand name and posting it , may be quicker than waiting for a 94 Damon owner to respond.

Most slide units have a roller on each side to both support the slide and make a smoother move, some long slides have 3 rollers for the slide to support the weight. With the slide partway out, or in, the rollers may be seen. Sounds like one has broken, or the mechanism has severely slipped out of adjustment. If you are a DIY person, you will find the adjustment instructions online..
In the meantime, to prevent carpet damage, consider buying a set of Slide-Out Slickers.. We bought a set to protect the new carpet, after we bought our 05 Grand Junction and the slide actually cut the carpet the first week of use.
