Manually closing slides

Just for my information - how do you manually close the slides on a 2006 Lexi 283.... Don't have a problem right now so this is only an "in case I have to" question.... Owners manuals all suck...

On the front slides, if you look below the chassis around the middle of the slide, there is a shaft with a nut on the end. You just put a ratchet on that to crank it in our out. Sometimes there is a cover over the shaft, or it is at the top of a storage compartment.

Thanks for the info.... Now if I have a problem, I won't have to drive down the road with the slides open - even thought that would give move room inside.

Slides

I also have a 2006 Lexington 283 GTS and mine work differently than described above or on the instructions on the over sink cabinet.
Both front slides have access to the release on the roof of the storage compartment under the slide. The rear one has access under the bed. There is a cotter pin you remove from the gear shaft and the slide can be manually pushed in or out. You should wedge something between inside lip of the slide and the wall or get the cotter pin back in before driving the unit or it will slide out on turns.

Regards, Larry

Larry.....

Thanks for info about slides.... I have the same unit you have so your procedure is exactly what I would do....

Question totally off subject - what kind of milage are you getting.... We leave in three weeks for Yellowstone from Texas and this will be our first "real trip" in it (other than when we drove it home from Wisconsin when we nought it) and I'm curious as to what I can expect....
