2002 Frontier 305S Slide Problem

I am having problems when I try to retract my slide. I have broken three shear pins in the last 6 months. This seems to happen in the first couple inches of travel when retracting the slide. I can manually wrench the slide closed. My question is are there any adjustments that I might look at that would lessen the strain when the slide raises up on retracting?

It would seem that when fully extended the slide is in a bind. Could be from dipping down at the end of the track. Try stopping the slide extension short of the end and see if it binds going in. It also could be a broken tooth on the track. It is kind of hard to inspect but what ever is in a bind is your problem. Hope this bit of info helps

You have a 1 year warranty why not let a dealer find the problem?

Title of post says different

Has this trailer always had this issue or just started lately?

If it's a flush floor slide, then it could be going too far and catching on the ramp up portion for some reason. What is in the slide?
