Manually Closing Living/Dinette Slid

After removing the hitch pin is this the correct bolt to turn to close the slide?

You probably don't need to remove the pin. Just get the proper size socket and go to it.
Same type of set up on our Lexington. I carry a 1/2 inch drive with the proper socket (can't think of the size right now) just for the chance I might need it.
Pin is there to prevent the inside assembly from pulling through the floor should the motor/gearbox/frame assembly comes loose. It won't pull the manual bolt up thru the floor.

Yes, that is what mine looks like too. I did not remove pin for my test run on it.

I forgot to say this is on a 2017 3010DS.
I would think they would be the same.
Thanks for the responses.

Mine is a sunseeker 2013 2650s. I was surprised at how easy the slide moved using this bolt.

One of my favorite RV bloggers had a slideout issue a couple of years ago and he posted interesting blog and video. He has a different c class but many of his blog entries are pretty interesting and relevant.

It’s located in the long compartment (under the slide) on the drivers side.

Did you close your slide all the way in on your test run?
Also, could using this method damage the slide motor?

No, it does not damage the motor. It is there for that purpose. Do NOT remove the pin, that is how the fitting drives the shaft. I think it requires a 3/4 inch socket. You may already have a manual crank for the tongue jack that will fit it.
