2012 327 DS living room slide

Hi:

The slide in the living room won't extend. The bedroom slide moves fine. Where is the manual crank? Is this common? Thanks!

Check fuses.

What's the manufacturer and model? Is it an electric, hydraulic or Schwintek slide?

If it's hydraulic do the slides all move together on one switch or individually with separate switches?

There is a separate switch for each slide.

I'm not very familiar with hydraulic slides. Here's a link to an operating manual for hydraulic slides by Lippert. There's a trouble-shooting section on pg 11.

The good news: I got it opened by running the generator and then sliding it out. Apparently, the batteries were not charged enough to supply enough power to turn the motor. The battery gauge showed 3 of 4 lights lit.
The bad news: The carpet under the couch ( when slide is retracted) was wet along the edge of the slide. I sure am glad we decided to buy a new unit so we wouldn't have problems like this!
