A "for what it's worth" comment: My slide has a Lippert "under sofa" unit that operates electrically (12vDC). But if something happens and one would need to manually operate the slide- -the drive unit is indeed under the sofa. You have to lay on the floor of the unit to reach it. There is a pin that has to be pulled which I believe dis-engages the drive unit, then there is a hex shaped protrusion that can be turned with a wrench or ratchet/socket. After I bought this unit I thought about manually moving the slide just in case I would ever need to do so. It takes a lot of turning this manual mechanism to get the slide to move and it's not easy. I did have somewhat of the opposite problem once. While returning home from a trip I noticed in my outside rear view mirror that my slide was out while going down the road at 60 MPH. I slowed down then stopped at the next place that was safe to do so and wound up literally pushing the slide back into place. I have no means of blocking the slide in the closed position so I just had to be careful getting home. It turns out that a shear pin had sheared within the drive unit itself. Not a bad job to replace it but I sure felt lucky to have made it on home.
