It is my understanding that our Vibe 6504's have the Lippert/Shwintek in wall motors! There isn't a simple manual slide operation. If/when the slide will not automatically go in or out with the switch it will require a person to go in behind the seals and loosen the motors themselves and drop them down away from the slide tracts! My slide currently isn't flush on both sides so at some point it will be going to dealer at which time I plan to ask for some better hands on information should I ever have to manually retract!

The Lance campers have the same slide I believe. By what I have read you need to disconnect the electric drive and push the slide in manually and brace it with a 2x4 to keep slide in while traveling until repairs are made. This if both campers have the same slide.

Thank you Flower,for your response.I contacted customer service at Forest River:they emailed me the service info.This info included ref to YouTube videos from Schwintek and Lippert.Today I also found a great thread started by Biker2 in the tech section under slideouts.Also I searched my trailer (followed slide motor wiring)and located the Slideout controller.It sure would be nice if our owners manuals were not so generic.
