What are these flexible wrench extensions for?

I have four of these that came with the important papers for my Georgetown 364. They are flexible wrench extensions. Are they for the tires?

You use a drill with those.

Likely to move your slides in and out in the event of a powered or hydraulic pump failure.

May also raise or lower levelers.

Those are for emergency use when you bedroom slide won't work because of dead battery or other. It attached to a battery drill and you insert the end to a place on the electric motor of the slide not working.
You should have some literature about your electric slides.

Ah! Perfect, thanks.

I just poured through the documents and can't find anything about the slides.

You don't mention what year Georgetown you have.
If you look at your bed slide out you can see the motor and cabling used.
I had this in my old 5th wheel. It usually is at the top covered by a wood valance so you won't see it unless its in or partially out.
If you can see the motor look at the end of the motor where you attach the flex extensions to. It may be covered up by a rubber boot.

Here is a picture to help

Good luck

I'm assuming you have the electric cable slides if you have those. Here is a link to the service manual and how to use them. I didn't have that manual in my MH when I bought it either.

My 2011 Georgetown 327DS didn't come with the wrenches. If I ever needed to use them, I'd need to disassemble the overhead above the slide to get to the motor. I've always wondered why FR didn't consider putting an inspection port there to allow access when the electric motor fails.

We have one of these for our Flagstaff TT. The PDI guy showed us it is a tool used, with a cordless drill, to move the wardrobe slide in an emergency.
