Which slide do I have?

I've seen lots of discussion about how to properly operate the slide out rooms, particularly about sync ' ing the motors, but that procedure is different depending on the manufacturer. I have a 2014 3500SS. The slide room is most of the drivers side and encompasses the couch and dinette. How can I figure out who manufactured my slide? TIA!

If you have tracks like this at the top and bottom of each side of the slides, it's a Lippert Schwintek slide.

We do not build a 3500SS.

So you either mean a 3050S (which is a full wall slide, living room and bedroom) Which is a Schwintec.

OR, you mean 3100SS which is a super slide (sofa and dinette) no bedroom slide. that one has a Lippert Above floor slide.

Out of curiosity, Brian - what's the manual override on the above floor slides?

Here is a video on lubrication. Lippert has a ton of videos on their slides.

Manual over-ride on the above floor is a shaft below the slide motor. They have a video on that as well.
