Entertainment Slide will not extend out
I have a 2008 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 5th wheel. On the last day of a 2-week trip the entertainment slide would not extend out. The local dealer suggested some tips but we still cannot move it out with motor or muscle. This is a single drive slide out.
Motor made ratcheting sound when “out” button pressed. Used the manual crank on the motor until I was afraid of twisting something off, but it still did not move. Unhooked the motor from drive gear and the motor worked normally. The drive shaft gear and the track gear slack could be moved freely back and forth. Then used a wrench on the drive gear shaft and the slide would not move. Felt like the slide was locked real solid in place. Used muscle and it would not move, except for tilting outwards. Forest River said it was a Lippert system. Neither could offer a solution. Hopefully someone may have solved this problem before. Appreciate any help. Thanks.
