Slide motor shaft extension

We have an East to West with two slides that have no extensions on the motor shaft. There is a fitting with a pin on the end of the motor and a hole in the frame that is the same as the Rockwood we had before. It takes a 3/4 in. socket and ratchet to manually operate. I have a Lippert number for the crank and the 7", but need an number for the other side which would be 18" or so. Then I need to cut a hole in the skin of the trailer and I wouldn't have to get under to manually operate them if needed.
East West parts manager says the option wasn't available when our unit was built. Huh?
Thanks
Bob

Some slides you need to crawl under with a ratchet and socket, these slides are as you describe with out an extension. If you know which type of slide out you have I have all the documents.

Could you buy an 18" or 24" extension for the ratchet and socket. Then you could use a drill to operate them. You could even fabricate a guide tube out of PVC if you wanted to guide the socket onto the hex head at the motor.

Not all of Lippert's slides have the manual extension on the end towards the side of the trailer. Some you have to come from the side of the slide out. Such as Above Floor Sofa Slide (5/8), Flush Floor Slideout System (5/8 or 3/4), and 2 x 3 Slideout System (15/16). The 2x3 Slideout system has an extension to be used but it attaches to the end of the rack & pinion from the side. OP's slide must be the Flush Floor Slideout System as he said it uses a 3/4" socket.

Sorry for the delay in responding but we were traveling. We do have the flush floor and it is 3/4. I have found a part number for a seven inch extension which will work on one side. The other side is longer. Have already considered making something that will work. When we got home one slide had blown the main fuse. Second time. Called the dealer and they are contacting the company about the possibility of taking to the factory. Neither slide gets to the clutch and ratcheting noise any more.
They adjusted one slide and now it sticks out on the front edge.
Thanks for all the responds.
Bob

My bad. Under the trailer today looking at the slide adjustment and looked at the motor again. It's a 5/8 inch hex head. Something like a long nut driver would work. Found that I had a crank left over from a previous camper.
The slide needs adjustment as its rubbing a bit on the floor. II can see were they made some adjustments to keep it from hitting the island but it doesn't seal good outside. Dealer says it may have to go back to the factory because of all the problems. I think they have given up. Time will tell
