What do you mean sticking ?? are the black rubber seals sticking to the sidewalls ?? If that is the case I lube mine up a few times a year with slideout lube. Not sure if this is what your talking about though.

Or does it stop moving and then start again in a few seconds? If you can give us some more information we'll sure try to help. There is a lot of knowledge and experience around this forum.

Black rubber seals - use corn starch - and they are not the seals, but they are the wipers. Their main job is to wipe moisture off when retracting. The seals are actually around the frame of the slide.

It could be that the tracks that the slide move on are dirty and need a good cleaning. Use only Dry Lube on those tracks. Any petroleum based, or wet lube, will attract more dirt and grime.

If by sticking you mean stopping and then starting after a few seconds, well that has been addressed many times and is typically associated with the 50 amp circuit breaker near the motor not being strong enough for the current draw.

Of course, I have to ask, what do you mean by "sticking?"

Every time we have experienced problems as you describe it was a lack of lubricant on the slide arms- I hope I have learned that lession for all time- The technician who serviced our rig recommended lubricating the slide arms monthly- Good luck on solving the problem and please post the outcome- Don
