Slide jumped gear

We have had the rear passenger living room slide jump a gear leaving a 1" gap at the rear of the slide. It also caused some damage to the flooring on the slide and along the rear wall. Has anyone else experienced this? What would be the cause?

Not to say that it couldn't happen, but I haven't heard of anyone else having that issue. I would be more suspicious of the adjustable bracket at the end of the passive arm. These slides are heavy, I would think it difficult to jump a gear. There are two slide arms on your slides, the active arm is the one with the silver hydraulic cylinder, the passive arm is the other one and just follows what the active arm does via a connecting gear. The passive arm has an adjustable bracket at the end allowing the slide to be adjusted up and down, sideways, and in and out. The active arm has a welded bracket at the end allowing for up and down and sideways adjustment. If either bracket is loose or bent this could be causing the problem.
