Red face manual slide operation

Hi Guys and gals, My Wife, Wilson our tsishuh puppy and I just bought a sandpiper 292rl. I was wondering if it is a challenge to open or close the hydraulic slide (MANUALLY) in the event that it quits operating? Theres not much info on it in my manual. Thanks

If your trailer is anything like my Forest River Cardinal you'll find a hydraulic pump and reservoir underneath near the front. On the end of the hydraulic motor you should find a cover the pops off. You can insert a standard hex bit powered by a cordless drill. Easy as that...forward or reverse depending on which way you want the slides to go. I doubt you'l need to worry about though. Those hydraulic systems are pretty durable. Ours gets a ton of use and we've had no problems.

One other thing. If there isn't enough space to get the drill in then you'll need one of those flexible shafts that can be found in most hardware stores.

Thanks firetruckin, I'll go out and look. I'm just going by the problems I had with my other trailer with the slide. It was electric though.
