The manual crank is usually on the opposite side from the the the way the slide moves. It will be 3/4 inch nut, on a shaft usually. With the slide out, look at the 2 support rails. The manual crank access is generally in line with one of the rails, just inside of one of them.. Most often, the front one, but not always. May be just under the edge of the siding, or may find an access hole in the siding, with a rubber plug covering the hole. Don't have a Sunseeker, and can't recall working on one lately. The suggestions I gave are generic, for any camper with an electric slide.

Slide manual crank point

chris123, on my 2006 Sunseeker 3100LTD the manual slide crank point is in the storage compartment directly under the slide. Open the compartment and look up inside for the "bolt head". I have not tried to use it yet, but there is not a lot of room to swing a ratchet without a short extension. Hope this helps.

Sunseeker is a motorhome...trailers have them in the siding, but motorhomes are typically below.

As stated above, there should be a shaft with a hex nut on it. Will be poking straight down below the slide out (maybe the roof of a compartment).
