Make sure the bladder has retracted. You should be able to see light at the upper corners and front and rear edges of the LR slide.  Visually confirm every time you move the slide.  I think your picture indicates the pins have released. 

You...

Following the procedures in the owners manual, I opened the four valves then attempted to use a come-along on the prescribed hooks.  Unfortunately, that just bent the hooks.  After that, I rounded up 5 guys and we were able to push it in.  Closed...

Hope you got your problem resolved. Sure makes your heart race when the slide won't come in. We have been working on slide problems on 2002 U320 since we bought it in December. Sent boxes in basement in to HWH. Replaced locks, replaced sensor...

I was hoping...
