Non-moving slide out

We own a 2007 Itasca Navion 23J. The slide-out will not move in or out unless I remove the brake. I thought about traveling without it, but don't know if the tie down straps would be safe and adequate. Could the brake be stuck? Can it be checked to see if it is functioning? Do I have any other options?

Thank You

Could the brake be stuck: YES.

Do you have "locking bars" to hold it in incase of brake failure?

If not, set the brake when you put it in and release it before extending.

If you do, .. You should still set the brake but,, you may also choose to trust the lock bar.
Home is where I park it!
