I've had the same problem on a different RV and put the slide out around 50% with no problem. Just be aware that you don't get a tight seal when the slide is not flush to the wall. Might want to bring it back in during a blowing rain that gets under the slide topper.

is it electric or hydro? Lippert electric slides of that era had a issue with too small of a motor.

This is the swap for mine, but may not be correct one for you. Be sure the existing wiring is sized properly for any increase amperage.
