Manual Slide Retract on 2011 V-Cross 27VFK

How to manual retract the large slide on 2011 V-Cross 27VFK?

My friend, that got me interested in ordering a new v-nose Windjammer, bought an older V-Cross model used. He said the dealer did not normally stock this brand new and did not show him how to manually retract his slide, and he's not found any info on it.

I told him I'd ask on here since he does not get on a computer much.

I said there may be some way to manually spin up the motor mechanism with a power drill and an attachment, but I didn't know whether access was internal or external on his 2011 V-Cross. He hasn't brought it back from his deer lease yet, and I can't look at it.

Anyone familiar with the slide mechanism on this 2011 model? This is not critical, it's retracting now. He was interested because he wants to know in case of an emergency.

His only problem so far was that the flush valve froze and cracked. He had drained his heater and water lines, but a little water remained in that little valve. Hard freeze got him, he replaced it.

Thanks for any help on the slide.

If it is a Lippert electric slide, see this video: How to Manually Extend or Retract an Electric Slide-Out System. - YouTube
