1998 natioal tropical slide room issue

hi all
i posted earlier that the gears on my slide may need replacing. I had my wife open the slide (works fine) then try retracting...it move a little then seems to bind, a simple push on the front of the slide and it moves again, then repeats the binding....anyone experienced this? what is the solution? doesn't look like much is adjustable except the rollers? any help would be appreciated

All i can say is what helped on mine.. From the outside pull down on the bottom seal and look for rollers. spray them with "silicon with teflon" Open the bay doors and look or the slide gears, spray anything that moves or looks like it moves.
Also on the outside slide walls, spread "Carnuba" (red bottle) car wax on them. i used a $1 sponge mop and put it on thick. the above worked for me. good luck
