HELP!! Does anyone know about bunkhouse slide mechanism

The slide mechanism on my bunkhouse slide (390bh) broke. It is a cable controlled slide and the motor and gear box broke. I am stuck in Ocala, Fl and have a number of reservations made for our trip south and have relatives flying in that we need to meet on Sunday. I have tried calling Forest River but it seems that everything is closed due to the weather. I wanted to search the internet to see if anyone had the part in stock but not sure who makes the slide motor and gear box or the model number. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

You should have a speed wrench to open and close it manually.

Gears are stripped and the gears just spin, making a grinding noise. Slide won't move in or out. Speed wrench does nothing.

Have you tried any local dealers in the area to see if they have the part

As usual, no one has the part in stock. They need to get it from FR.

Not sure but I think this is the slide. I'm on my phone and don't have the computer here.

Is it a BAL product? ACCU Slide?

Have you tried to put it in manually with some one pushing on the slide to get it in

The mobile techs tried to manually push it in but for some reason couldn't. Phil/h2oski, that is the slide mechanism but it lists 3 different motors and not sure which one is in my coach. I am at a friends house in Ocala now and can't look to see which one it needs. Tried calling Bal and no one is there that can help me. Seems everyone, including FR, is shut down due to the weather. I guess I will try again in the morning.
