How to manually extend the slide out?

I have a surveyor 240 rbs and the slide out will not move. We are at a campsite and really need it out. Is there a way to extend the slide out manually?

Thanks

What is going on that the slide does not go out normal?
If it is electric have you check the fuses?

I have checked all the fuses, I can hear the motor or something under the slide out click when I push the button. But nothing happens. I was told there is a manual extender/retracted but I could not find it.

Where the manual is would depend on the brand and type of slide you have.

Hydraulic or electric.

It is electric, I have spoke the place I purchased it from, and found that I have a ground fault. And to get the slide out out, we can push it if we disconnect the motors. I am leaving it in.

Thanks for your help.

I have a switch to one of my slideouts that is troublesome. Sometimes I have to hold or activate the switch a dozen times to get it to work, but it eventually does every time. I think it works better when hooked to shore power too. If you're hearing the click when you push it, the switch is trying to engage. I just keep trying and it works. Never any trouble getting it in though, which is a blessing. Good luck

Yes. Did you get a long crank with a slotted end? If so, that is the slide crank.
Did you get a manual for the trailer and a bunch of booklets and instruction sheets? If so, read the info on how to do this.
If you have no instructions, look for a hole about 1-2 inches in diameter on the side of the trailer opposite the slide. This is where you insert the crank. (Mine is in the wheel skirting.)

Locate the electric motor for your slide...you might have to remove a wooden panel to get to it. On the motor drive unit you should see a 5/8" drive nut...the same size as on your rigs stabilizer jacks...might have a cotter pin through it. This is the manual drive nut for the slide...rotate it using an electric drill with the appropriate size socket or your stabilizer drive handle or a suitable wrench...clockwise extend, counter clockwise retract (or vice versa...not quite sure)
