Something else just came to mind, explain more on the "lifting it a bit with a jack"?
When the slide moves, does the slide sort of "jump/bounce" for a moment as the slide travels in or out?
When you jack up the slide, where do you place the jack, how high do you lift it and how far in/out is the slide from the side of the camper, 2", 4" 6" etc sticking out from the side of the camper?
Once you are past the place where the jack was lifting, does the slide finish closing up by itself or do you have to help it the whole rest of the way?
Does the slide movement stall out always happen in the same spot?
Pending which slide drive brand yours has, there are bronze bushings on the pinion shafts that have worn out over time and let the gear drop down. That gearing issues causes a binding in the gear teeth.
Would need pics of your slide arms, the rack and pinion setup and the motor drive setup to better help explain where to look for these worn parts. The two brands that you may have, are different enough that I did not want to give you the wrong places to look.
Hope this helps
