Slideout problem

I have a 2004 Springdale by Keystone model 286RL. My dining room slideout rubs and tore the "water protection covering" on the left top of the slideout. I ordered the recommended repair kit but need to know how to fix the slideout so it does not rub anymore. Plus now the slideout takes forever to go out. It moves about a quarter inch every time I push the switch to go out. It must be cranked in manually. I'm new to this forum and new to rving. My first purchase & trying to learn. Thank you for any help.

It sounds like you have a motor(s) going bad. Or the force from the rubbing is putting too much stress on the motor(s) and it's overheating. Being a 2004 model, do you know if motors have ever been replaced?

do you know what kind of slide you have, is it cable operated ? i'm working on a cable one right now. I had to change a broken cable and now thinking I will do them all .adjustment on these is critical for proper movement.

I do not know if it's been replaced, but figuring probably not. I will replace the electric motor. I also noticed on the side that ir rubbed that there is a very slight buckle in the metal wall of the slide.

Thanks, no it is electric with the gear system for the slide mechanism. I think I'm going to do like you & replace the components.
