its very possible but sometimes you had two cranks . one for jacks one for slide out.
you should be able to look in hole and see the nut and or round shaft with the roll pin in it.

On some units you DO have to access motor but as long as you have a hole on the opposite side across from slide out that will be your manual operation point.

Can't you just plug in the truck and use your truck's battery to extend the slide? I'm completely against manual labor if I can take an easy way out...

maybe if I hook some jumper cables up between my Jeep and the dead battery on the camper it will charge enough to open the slide and then I'm good!!!

No, like just plug in the 7-pin connector and see how it goes (as if you were gonna tow it).

What ependydad is saying is plug in your harness plug just as if you we're going to tow that will give you power to open it up

hmmm...I hadn't thought of that. Interesting idea. I guess I never considered what all would be powered just through the 7-pin. I thought that just powered lights and what not, but you could be on to something.

Thanks. I'm realized I'm being (unintentionally) painfully vague. Thanks for translating!

If that doesn't work- I'd be tempted to move the battery from the jeep, connect up the old one and run the slides out and then out the battery back into the jeep. I doubt it would kill it enough to need a jump. (Pure guess, to be honest, though.)

Otherwise, to the OP- read up on battery disconnects. At the end of the season, make sure your battery has a full charge and then disconnect it. It should essentially hold it's charge all winter with only losing a little power. That way, you won't have hassles next year.
