Slide out gear box

We have a Rockwood 5th Wheel, 2008, model 8280SS.
For the third time in three years, the "shear pin" in the slide out gear box has snapped and the electric motor will turn, but the gear box will not move the slides.
Twice we have had a dealer put in a new pin, but this time I would like to do it myself. I am looking for instructions or a schematic of the unit so I know what I am doing. Any suggestions?

I have a similar problem... which motor/gearbox you have? Is it a lippert?

On mine I suspect it's the clutch... Anyway... what do you mean by the shear pin?
