The kitchen slide out on my 5th wheel has been nothing but a problem. It was repaired once under warranty when it failed. It failed again and I had to get 4 men to get it pushed in to get it back to the dealer - no longer under warranty. 2 weeks later it failed again. I no longer can trust this slide to work when I try to pack up and leave a campsite. This is the nicest RV I have owned but the most problematic. I have owned 6 RVs and never had a slide out problem until now. This 5th wheel has had very little use and stored indoors. May be time to cut my loses and get rid of this lemon.
We have the same slide profile with the pantry. Only difference is we have the residential fridge.

One quick check would be to see if any of your rollers under the slide are broken. You can see them when the slide is out by looking under the flap from inside.

I use a very small sponge brush and dip it in the silicon and brush it on. Does not make a mess on the floor. 100% silicon is very thick and doesn't run. A flash light helps to see. The rollers are just about 2" from the edge of the floor of the slide when open.
