Cool Slide out issues Dutchmen 27'

Slide out is not working properly. Hydraulic pump functions perfectly, extended but lacks about 7" to complete, now it will not go back or forward on front end. Cannot find any areas here jamming has occurred the far toothed runner extend to the point it is pushing the siding outward , front one not moving at all. Any ideas, looked everywhere for a suggestion? Thanks for any help in advance!

You may have the system where the front and rear gears are connected by a square tube--the end with the hydraulic ram pushes the gear on that end out/in, and the square tube connects to the opposite end gear and moves it. There are shear bolts on both ends, and one end may have sheared. Or the tube itself is broken, but you should hear some noise from that. This all requires that the belly cover be removed over the ram end of the system to visually see what is moving/not moving.

Thanks for the reply..checked all of that before and it was good..I grabbed a couple of foundation jacks put them under the slide out and leveled it out, then everything worked fine, so I guess it was hung on something that was not visible to the naked eye
