It's hard to guess without knowing the type of slide mechanism.  There are several different types (hydraulic, rack & pinion, cable) and several manufacturers whose designs have changed over the years, so there is quite a variety.  Can you better describe what you have?

Today the RV manufacturers generally buy the slide mechanism from a component supplier, so the slide may have its own brand name. However, slides were a new thing back in 1986 and what you have may be Teton's own design. Or it may be a retrofit, added afeter the trailer was built.
