I don't remember the socket size. It was in my basic 3/8 socket set, so it wasn't bigger than 3/4 inch. As I recall I did remove the pin. I think the pin connects the electric drive with the gear mechanism, but I can't swear that is correct. I'll check the next time I have it at home.

If you ever have to manually retract your slide you need to pull that pin and take a wrench or ratchet to that bolt and begin to rotate it.

Josh, what does the pin do? I see someone has retracted theirs without removing the pin. Thx, Ben

The manual doesn't say what it does but it does show them not taking it out while retracting it with a 5/8 wrench.

Question for Joshua on above floor slide out

Joshua, is there a manual override switch that must be pressed while turning the manual override nut? Or do you disconnect the battery and use the ratchet.

The above floor slide out for my dinette sticks out 2" more at the bottom than the top when extended. The dealer said it's OK and supposed to be like that. But when I just looked a photo I had taken back in June of the same model the dealer had in stock, it looks perfectly squared. Mine doesn't look right. The awning doesn't seem overly tight to cause this.

By design the slide pushes out a little farther at the bottom than it does the top.

Hey Joshua, if you look at my photos of the dealers and my Forester, Mine has different overhead clearance lights. I have little button shaped instead of the larger orange. Is this a new upgrade to avoid the leakage problem? Are these LEDs?

The front clearance lights on yours and mine are LED. A few months ago Brian posted they had to switch from the larger incandescent due to a long shoreman strike.
