Slide out will not extend with motor or manually

I recently got rid of my 1994 Rexhall for a 1998 National Sea View 8330. This unit has a slide out but when going to extend the slide for the first time after getting it the motor kept making a grinding noise. After speaking to a few friends and coworkers at Camping World I was told that I can manually extend my slide out. I took the motor apart and used the tool designed to manually extend the slide and still could not get it to budge. Iíve lubricated the seals and the gears as well as the tracks. The slide out does appear to be off level and my rig is reading level. Iím not sure if this is causing the issue or how I would go about fixing it. This forum and its contributors have helped me tremendously with my Aerbus. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If it is on a declining lip, the wood could be rotten and holding it in place. You will need some man power. If you took the motor loose or out, it should be free to work in. Sometimes you can disconnect too much and it not work altogether manually or electronically. Some of the manual gears need each other to turn. Itís one hole to put your part into bot it is linked to another gear to turn both sides. Try posting a picture.

Check the rod thatís going into the round hole to the left of your picture. See if itís turning on both ends when you turn your gears manually. Sometimes the Carter pin can/will come loose. Or a screw/bolt.

Iím in Orange Beach Al. Both sides do turn but I can only get them to move a half turn even with one person on each side. The Carter pins appear to be snug i checked all of the bolts to make sure they were tight earlier and I was able to tighten the black roller in the picture but those were the only ones loose. There is a very small part of the floor right above the rail in the picture that is somewhat soft and could probably use some tlc but doesnít appear to be rotten. Iíve been trying to watch videos and read articles but canít seem to find anything similar to what Iím dealing with lol

Check for a "slide locking device". Some slides have device that prevents them from moving while traveling. It could be something as simple as a rod between the front slide flange and the outside wall, think sliding glass door with a rod in the track preventing it from being pried opening.
