I looked for the rollers when the slide is out. There are 4 or 5 of them and are about an 1" in diameter and 3" long. You can lift the seal to see them. If it happens again, I plan on checking them.
Question, does anyone have a idea on get the weight off them to check or service?
I would place a 1í X 1í 3/4Ē plywood under the slide to spread the load. Take a 4X 4 post and cut to length with a bottle jack to take the weight off the rollers. Do not need much. If you need to do the middle I would put one at both ends, maybe a foot or two in from the end. Thatís just one way. You just need to support the weight. Iím sure someone else may chime in with another way.

Get weight off roller

Thank you for the recommendation to look at that. I saw them and know exactly where to look.

I also saw in the LCI troubleshooting guides them talking about taking the weight off those. They show the rails having to come out first and then you can lift the slide with a jack. See the LCI guides on their support website for the exact prescription.
