Tent Zipper Repair

This past weekend, my council had their Spring Order of the Arrow Ordeal. In
spite of it being a some what wet and cold weekend, we added close to 150
new Arrowmen/Arrowwomen to the OA Lodge.
On a personal note, I was called out for and received the OA Vigil Honors
this past weekend also.
However, the purpose of my post is to ask about zipper repair. I have a
fairly new Eureka Timberline tent, (six months) and when getting into it on
Friday night, the zipper jammed and in trying to clear the jam, I pulled the
zipper slide completely off the track. I give up on it Friday night and left
it open and never did have time the rest of the weekend to work on it. My
question is it possible to get the slide back on the tracks when it comes
off about mid way of the zipper, or will it be necessary for me to take the
tent or send it back to Eureka or some other tent repair place in order to
get it fixed?
