Coachmen slide problem

2003 Coachmen Mirada 330 Front slide will not go out on it's own, little weigh leaning on it and it will go out, same when bring it in, have to pull and help it. Where do I lubricate? Under the slide is covered with a material, do I tear the material off then try to replace after I get into the slide mechanical linkage? What should I use to lubricate if I find a place to lubricate? Thanks in advance, Larry

So it will actually move on it's own power?
I would think low voltage first. If hydraulic, that or low fluid.

Yes, will goby itself if I lean on it or pull on it when bring it in. Like it doesn't have enough power. I am plugged into shore power. It is electric not hydraulic.

Well, I'd still check voltage at motors. Is it making a loud clicking sound while pushing the button at the very beginning or does the motor just try and stop?

No click but the motor would "slow down then quit if I wasn't providing the extra force by pushing or pulling on it. I got lucky, bought electrical diagrams for the motorhome from Ebay, 03 Coachmen Mirada, drawings showed a 'motor controller" After tracing wires I found it under the stove. The controller had a potentiometer with "min" & "max" It was set on "min", adjusted it to "max" and no more problems. I suspect the setting was for motor torque. Thanks for your advice,
