Generator Slide Stuck

Hello folks, the manual generator slide on my 2007 Camelot 42 ft PDQ is stuck. The release mechanism seems like it is working i.e. some give and feels like it actuates but I am unable to slide out the gen. Crawled around under the coach, lubed what I thought were the appropriate locations, nothing. Not as strong as I once was, and it was never an easy pull / push, but itís stuck now. Other than getting the neighbor to assist with the tug, any suggestions on lube points and or actuator adjustment?

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

The latch on one side was hanging on mine, I lubed it and had to tap it with a hammer and then work it some. There's a latch on each side connected with a cable.

I had the washer hose slip down and get wedged in the clasp - had to cut and patch the hose, but that freed it...


whenever I HAVE to get into that, I park slightly downhill (with an uphill close by) so gravity helps a bunch
