Manual operation of slide out..please help.

Hi, I am a novice camper owner. I have a 2008 Wildwood LA BHSS. The park that my camper is located at has not turned electricity on yet and I do not own a generator. The only thing I want to do is put my slideout out so I can begin doing some cleaning and what not. I know there is a manual way to do this, but I cannot find info on how to. I read that there is a tool that you can use on some part of the motor transmission cover to extend it manually, but I have no idea where that is and the directions don't say in the trailers manual. Anyone have any advice? Thanks for your time.

Look on the door side of the camper opposite the slide, do you see a hole towards the bottom of the skirting that is directly across from the slide ?

yes, but I'm thinking that hole was supposed to be used like for the gas line for exterior grill

you should have a crank in your camper , you stick that in the hole and line it up with nut on the back side and crank away !

Okay...thanks a lot. That helps a lot. I had no idea it was that easy. I kept reading about having to access the motor through panels under the camper, etc.
