That way if I do have to take it some where I am armed with a bit of knowledge.
Thanks ahead of time,
My guess is that deterioration has been ongoing (I had a similar problem). Look at your image 0167 and see the white piece with two screws. That delron/HDPoly runs the length of your slideout and serves as a glide plate (similar to rollers). On mine, that piece had broken and was wearing the underside of the slide on every activation. Look under the slide behind the seals and inspect. In my case we hyper extended the slide and replaced the delron piece and then also replaced the slide liner. It's a one day job and ~$450 parts if your handy. I'd guess $2000 or so at the shop.
