Slide out getting stuck

My 09 jayco 32bhs slides keep sticking on me. We use it about 10 times a year and each time I get it out of storage one of the two slides sticks, I have always been able to flip the switch several times real quick from in to out and it frees it. However today I had to open the panel underneath and turn the 5/8 nut a half turn and wife hit switch and it worked. These seem to be real basic slides, has a small dc motor on it. Is this a sign of motor going bad or is there anyway to service these, such as greasing tracks. My manuals don't have any information but take to dealer, Can't wait two weeks to get in.

Thanks for any info.

yes they make Slide Out Lube Spray at any trailer supply for the track.
or any good silicon spray will work. Don't use grease as it will attract dirt.

Use a good Silicon Spray on the tracks. I also use a medium stiff brush to clean the track before using the spray. I just removed a mud dauber a nest from one track.

RV slide-out repair tips and advice. Once the shear pin broke on a slide mechanism, went online and found a video for exactly how to replace the pin with a standard 1/4" hardware bolt and nut; and how to re-align the room before replacing the pin.
Preventative maintenance is the key to re-occurance.
