Slide issue

Hi all, new to the forum but not to camping. On my 2012 Jayco jay flight 28bhs I had the slide stop working this weekend while breaking camp. I was pulling the slide in and right at the point it fully closed I didn稚 hear the tell tale clicking that indicates the slide is all the way in. Luckily the slide was in when it stopped but I知 trying to figure out what happened. I can hear the motor spinning and the slide looks like it is still on the track. There is a good bit of play in the slide now when I rock it gently back and forth. I知 having trouble getting under the jack knife couch to get a better look. So two questions, does this sound like a shear pin and what is the best way to get access u see the couch. Thanks in advance.

Is this a rack & pinion slide with the clutch & motor all one unit?

They have two bars, one on each side, with teeth facing downward. There should also be a "tube" on one end with a worm gear.
