2860DS Slide Info Needed

Can anyone confirm for sure the socket size to use to manually retract the slides on the Sunseeker 2860DS? I forgot to check it and want to get a socket before I go get The MH at my wifes parents house. I have a drill 1/2" adaptor, extension and flexible joint. Just need the 1/2" drive socket size to fit.

I thought it was 5/8"...but I always carry a set. You never know when you're going to need a tool. Someone else might be able to confirm that...not at the plant today.

I was having trouble getting to it without taking the mattress off, my wife will hold it up and I'll fit it.. Looks like a 5/8 or so but I'll report after the test run this weekend

I have had a 2013 2860 for 3 seasons now and was not aware of a manual crank for the slides.

Could you send the location for the bedroom and living area?

The one under the mattress about a foot out from end of slide... you'll see a nut that looks like the head on a scissor jack.. I haven't looked for the one under the front room slide. I have the couch Seems I saw you can get to it from under couch or from under outside by lifting up on sealing rubber.. cant remember for sure... You wont find a crank for it... get a socket that will fit and an adapter for a drill motor.. I hear it takes forever to use a ratchet on it... I also used a swivel joint as the angle is a little hard with the drill or ratchet
