manual slide out on wildwwod xlite

I have a 32ft wildwood xlite 281BHXL. I will be going to Yellowstone this summer and have tried to identify possible sticking points. One of those is manually cranking the slide out. I simply cannot find the shaft. I have a underbelly cover so it could possibly be there but without cutting the cover open i have no idea. Plus unless i know where to cut i would simply be guessing and wasting a lot of the cover. Anybody have a similar camper that can assist me?

If your slide has two rail (top and bottom) as shown in this video then you have Schwintek system and no manual forum here for more info on how too operate etc etc

Could be on the opposite side around the tire opening, if so, you should have a crank handle for it.

Thanks Fonzie, that appears to be the answer. OldCoot, I have looked every where and it can not be found. After viewing the video I believe that it the answer for me. Now I just want to take the strip off to look at it. Personally I hope I never have that happen to me.

Manual Slide acess points

On my Surveyor 303, The left side slide manual connector is underneath the top step of the entrance doorway in the center of the step well. On the right side, there is a grey plastic ring in the area of the city water connection at the very bottom of the trailer wall. The slides move in and out fairly easy, with the long handled crank arm. Good luck!
