Another jammed slide - 06 LaPalma DP
Fix one issue and encounter a new one. Our LR slide will only go out about half way before it grinds to a halt. I know there's different slide mechanisms, but I can't figure out what this is so I can't easily troubleshoot. The slide has a wire cable on each side, and I'm guessing it's electric, but I can't find a motor/gear inside or outside. I do find that the back cable is very rigid/tight while the front cable has several inches of play.
I'm thinking it could be some debris under the slide interfering with the rollers since the front corner of the floor slide obviously had a leak - floor is rotting.
When we get back to Arkansas from our trip to northern Alberta, I plan to take the LaPalma to Nacogdoches to have the slide removed and repaired, but that's over a month away, and it would sure be nice to have a little more room while we're camped here for the next 10 days.
In reading other's issues with slides, it appears as the first thing to do it lubricate, but I'm not even clear on how to get at the rollers ...

it's too bad common sense isn't
