Slide out Sticks at Top

Trying to help a friend diagnose why all 4 of his slide outs stick at the top where the slide out meets the top of the wall. Sticks going in or out. If we brace the wall straight with our arms it'll slide fine. Otherwise the slide out seems to lean in or out and hangs-up.

Are you pushing the wall in/out, our pushing the edge up?

Normally there is a sizable gap at the top and it is sealed by rubber gasket.

The wall tends to rock back and forth like a rocking horse. If we hold the wall so it's straight up and down, it'll slide just fine. Not sure why there's so much rocking.

I thought you were talking about the RV wall, but I think you mean the slideout wall.

Sounds like a center roller is too high, making it like a teeter-totter.
look ubder the slide yo check the rollers.
lower the center roller, or raise the one on the low end with a shim.

Had a 05 Fleetwood Fiesta. The slide stuck at the top also. Wife and I rocked it at the top after opening the slide a couple inches, it would free. No way to lub gasket as it was several feet under the awning. No access.
