Is it a Schwintek slide? It'll have 2 tracks on either side, 2 motors and a controller to keep them in sync. The tracks look like this:

If so, the "override" sucks. You have to disconnect power to the motor. You can either get access to the motor by pulling down trim and a gasket and then unplugging the wire harness to each. Or, you should be able to disconnect the battery (and shore power). And then PPPPUUUUSSSSSHHHHHH.

I bruised my shoulders from pushing before I found that if I squatted, I could push with my legs with my back against the slide. I also found that the linoleum flooring wanted to shift from it. So I would have my wife stand in front of me and I'd plant my feet. Also using my arm to push against a doorframe helped.

The biggest thing is you need to get access to the controller and inspect its flashing lights/codes.

If it isn't a Schwintek, none of this is helpful.

Doug I think you right on target. I had to google the unit to find out it has the Schwintek.

checked out system prior to leaving Georgia...eight red lights flashing, no hall signal from motor, two green lights flashing, indicates motor #2...right now I have the power disconnected to the circuit board..may need to un=plug the motors from circuit board and leave the power to the circuit board connected even though no power is getting to the motors...have already purchased an new #2 motor....getting slide out is the problem..four guys earlier it would not move, still locked...

there is a thread on here about removing the motors on a Lacrosse by pt.
They had to drill access holes outside in the trim around the slide to loosen screws to the motors. Im gonna look for that that post for ya. PITA!!! Your not , from my understanding going to be able to push it out.

I think the power needs to be disconnected at the motor and not necessarily at the controller.

Here's what mine looked like when I tore into it:

Does your camper have a battery disconnect? You might be able to use that.

I'd also try removing all of the furniture that you can. I didn't have anyone to help me. I moved it 1/2"-1" at a time, alternating front and rear sides of the slide.

As I said, the only way I could get it to budge was to push with my legs with my back against the slide.

Good luck, man. This sucked getting it to move.

Here is what I found. Now if it was me, I would call Prime time and or my dealer before drilling any holes.

If Doug's right, his way may be better. Here is the pics and a link to that thread.

Look for inline fuse/circuit breaker with reset most likely positioned close to battery. Large loads always use in line protection, too large for DC fuse panel.

not aware yours Schwintek, my info N/A
