My sp220 is also a 2012. On mine you have to access the motor by removing the kickplate along the dinette. Removing the cushion then the two screws at the corners. The entire kickplate can then be slip up and out of the way to access the slide motor. My manual also shows the supposed drill location, however that is not actually the case.



The steel lug with the cotter pin through it is the actual connection point for manual operation.

It may not be identical to yours, but if you have had no luck finding the exterior hole, then more than likely you will need access to the actual drive motor.

Manual operation of Slide Outs

Thanks to everyone who tried to help. We have found no evidence of anywhere to put a crank or hand drill to do this.

We just put up with having to keep one of them closed.

1.) We tried to call the "tech support" line. We were past the first free year and they would not help me. Since it was a holiday, they still have 24/7 tech support, but you could not sign up in a holiday.

2.) Another person on the phone told us that they could be retracted manually, but not extended manually.

3.) The dealer told us to look for fuses that were not in the fuse box. Great design. I am supposed to crawl under the body tracing wires and looking for more fuses? Terrible design.

We are going back to the dealer to have this fixed. At that time I will ask how to do it manually, if it's even possible.

Amazing how much you learn when you buy your first "RV". There are many things I now know to look for next time.

Steve, I just sent a private message with contact info for the Surveyor department head. He's been very helpful in the past.
