I've looked at other forums about there being a option to put a drill at the end of the hydraulic pump. But mine doesn't have any opening there. I'M LOST
Are you sure you're pushing the correct "button"? Our 2012 Silverback has "rocker" type switches for the slide,but with you having a 2000 model, perhaps they are buttons. You might have to pull whatever type out and do a continuity check to make sure they are operating correctly. If they are, you need to check wiring and connections.
I believe almost all FW's have a provision for manually extending/retracting an inoperative slide (s). Get your FW VIN ( it should be on a placard usually located on the drivers side toward the front) and call your FW guy or dealer. They should be able to assist you.
