Slide slip I think??

I have a Thor 2013 31L Freedom Elite....yeah we'll go with that. Lol
So driving our great US Hwys today. Had a pretty good jolt bump that I was not expecting. The bump was so bad/hard that it knocked my mounted speaker off the wall, opened the TV door and turned the wheels on the car of my pull behind.
Now the large slide will not open. The slide looks to be off (open - gap) slightly on the front end. Anyhow was wondering if anyone else might have experienced something like this. I plan on keeping slide closed till after trip. Not wanting to get stuck. Any advise, thought greatly appreciated!

I have a bar on my slide that I put on the front. The back always moves out about an inch so I press the slide button to bring it in all the way until motors stop before trying to extend. Try retracting your side and see if both sides come into alignment. Leave the button in until bot motors stop. Good luck!

my 31L has the Schwintek slides. Don't know if that spelling is right.
Yours probably does too....
search for it on youtube. That company has put out several really great how to videos.

Anyway, I think Bruce is right, wind the slide in and it will likely line up.

otherwise they have a video talking about retiming, i think they called it.
