2501TS bedroom slide wouldn't retract but ...

Looking at a 2015 2500TS on the dealer lot yesterday. It was new unit to dealer lot and didn't even have dealer inventory tag on it yet.
When asked to test drive the two slides on the side of the rig came in just fine but the rear bedroom slide wouldn't work.

They took it to service and fixed it in about 10 mins. Dealer (sales person) said that batteries were low (even though two slides worked just fine) and they just needed to "reset" the slide.
Has anyone ever heard of resetting the slide??

I tried to find a number for Forest River direct but seems it is a secret and they don't put it on their website for contacting them. Anyone happen to have a number for some type of support from Forest River??

Remember -- We are all good at something.

I just happen to be a good bad example.

This was a good Question and I also would like to know. :Scenario: I'm boon-docking and the slide won't come in. Where is, if any and how do you manually retract the slides to travel to shop. I do have the Sunseeker 2015 2500ts and the walk through wasn't clear. I don't like doom and gloom, but this would be a real problem. Is there a crank in? Pictures would be great!!
