Slide out failure - need help

Hello,
Camping in Florida in a Flagstaff 8528IKWS 5er and when breaking down to move the bedroom slide is not working.....won't come in.

I have looked at the cable chain mechanism and it "looks" okay. Seems to be getting no power. I checked fuses and breakers and all other electrical seems ok (other two slides)

Can I manually pull it in? How?
Any troubleshooting advice appreciated.

Thanks

Wdw0528

Oops.....now realize the front power jacks are also not apparently receiving power. All fuses that I know about are ok.

Suggestions?

Thanks Paul but don't see anything like that. Only thing I see similar is the battery disconnect.

When I had the slide problem, I pulled the switch panel and jumpered off another switch, for power, till got home and found the hidden fuse...

I suspect a hidden fuse is my problem too......still looking. Seems to also control front power jack.

Mine are separate....2 fuses located down behind battery, and 2 behind power dist. center. This 5er doesn't have the resettable type with the button
