Bedroom slide

Getting things loaded for our migration to Texas, when I went to put out the bedroom slide the seal stuck across the top. I stopped it right away, maybe a foot, and ran it back in. Got DW and had her run it out while I freed it up. Needless to say the seal was all tore up. Replaced but when I run it back in something seemed different. It did come all the way in and sealed properly. Just seemed to run in different. Could I have damaged the mechanism. Won’t be able to tare the bed apart till we get to TX the first of December.. just wondered if any of you has had this happen.
2010 Montana 3400RL.

This is actually one of my fears with our bedroom slide as well. It's a LONG ways from the control panel, and you can't see anything, and are only limited to what you hear happening.

How did you know when the seal is stuck, or something is jammed up?

Even on the slides that are close, you can't really see anything when they are going in and out. And as the seals slide by there, they make quite a bit of noise, that sounds like it's ripping things apart, but it's just the seals bending back and forth. Our last camper did the same thing, but never munched a seal...

You did not mention if it was a schtick slide or not, if it was you will most likely have to resink the slideout motors. look up resinking schitek motors and it will be fine!

Since it's a 2010 3400RL, most likely that all slides are hydraulic. I know our 2010 2955
was hydraulic on both Livingroom and bedroom.

Keep all the seals well lubed up. I use 303 protectant or slide seal lube several times a year.

Friend of mine said "lube seals, never done that in 5 years", now he has seal issues. Go figure.

You may have broken the connections between the bed frame and the wall of the slide and/or also the connection of the slide mechanism to the wall of the slide may now be bent or partially ripped loose. This is a photo of our slide with the plywood removed. It is only showing one of the two slide tube mechanisms, but they are both the same.
