Kind of looks like a voice to text translation. Here's how I read it.

Okay here goes I have a 1998 American tradition. When I went to pack up last week the slide came in 3 inches and then stopped. I reversed the direction and the motor worked fine and brought the slide back out. I tried to run it back in but it only came in a few inches and stopped. I looked it over and noticed that the metal on the corner was bunched up.

The next day I cut away the metal and tried to bring the slide in. Again it started out fine but stopped and I could hear the motor laboring. I noticed that the left side of the slide came out but not the right said so it got crooked and bound up. I managed to use a ratchet to unlock the motor while pushing on inside of the slide and it came out. I looked again it seemed that the seal was swollen. Does anybody have any other ideas or has this happened to you?

Op I've never owned a slide so I probably can't help much. But when you say the metal was bunched up were there any obvious signs of impact? Was this a top or bottom corner of the slide?

My guess, broken shear pin on the right jack screw drive. Right side is just spinning, while the left is working as it should
