KwiKee Super Slide will not open

I have a 42 inch wide by 54 inch deep KwiKee Super Slide in my third passenger side storage compartment.
The Slide, probably about 2000 vintage the same as the RV, has been working fine since we bought the RV about two years ago.

However, a month or so ago it suddenly only came out about three inches before sharply stopping.

I have unloaded everything on and around it and searched for anything that could be stopping it. I can find nothing. The lever on the right side seems to release like it normally would.

Has anyone ever removed one of these? How do you go about it?
I can find no parts info or schematic online. There are numerous through bolts that seem to hold the deck on, perhaps these could be removed to give me more access. That will be a total pain since I would be crawling inside to get at these with limited space. Some bolts stick out the side also but i have no idea which do what.

Thoughts/suggestions???? --- thanks Dale

Well as often happens when I continue working on a problem the solution pops up.

It seems like either the floor to that compartment has sunk a bit, or the lip that seals the compartment door has risen. It is probably the floor of that compartment which has aged and sunk a bit.

The result is that the bolts that hold the deck of the slide in place are hitting the seal area around the compartment at the bottom.

I think if I reverse the bolts, or use thinner nuts that it will clear the compartment seal.

Going to try that now -- thx =-- Dale
