1998 tropical with slide out issue

Found this site yesterday and really found it informative and joined...i have a 1998 national tropical with an issue with the slideout room. It goes out ok but when trying to retract it grinds on the front side, suspect worn gears. looking for information on where to get replacement gears and how to remove old gear and install new. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Again, awesome site with some very nice people. Thanks. Chris
