Wardrobe slide problem Help Please

We have a new LaCrosse . We were planning to pull at dawn in the am and were getting trailer hooked up when the wardrobe slide won't come in. One side comes in a bit,but the number two side doesn't respond. Of course we have the Coach Net 24-7 service but they don't respond. So much for emergency assistance if you were strande somewhere on a Saturday night. Anyway we can't find anyplace to manually move it in. Assuming the switch and power are ok since the number one is responding. Any help would be appreciated. BTW we have had the trailer out one time and the slide worked ok then

Hi Tjah,

Sorry but I didn't see your post until now. Did you get the wardrobe slide working? Hope so because I don't have any slides and have no clue as to where to begin. If you are at a campground you could try chatting with a neighbor to see what you can do. RVers are a friendy group willing to help.

Other than the little matter with the slide how do you like your new LaCrosse?

Take care and safe travels.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Welcome tjah,

I hope you were able to sort this out.

If not, is there a separate fuse for that slide? Check if it's blown.

Is your battery charged? Slides don't like weak batteries.

There should be a hole for a hand held crank to manually retract the slide. Sometimes located on the opposite side of the trailer. Maybe accessed through the wardrobe. I don't know so maybe someone with a Lacrosse can respond. Or, call your dealer today.

Best of luck and let us know what you figured out.

OK, it is a wardrobe slide right? Does it have wires that run the slide in and out like mine? If so, here is everything you need to get you going.

Look in your drawers for a tool that looks like a flexible screwdriver extension. Along with a power screwdriver or drill, that is the tool you will need to manually open and close the slide.

You will need to remove the trim above the slide out. Pop the caps off the screws and unscrew them to remove the trim. This will expose the slide out motor. On the back of the motor is a HEX stub shaft. The flex drive fits on the stub shaft and running the drill one way extends the slide; reversing it retracts it.

If you contact the manufacturer and tell them your coach did not come with the tool, they should send you one.

Thanks for the replies! I actually found a link to a u tube video that showed how to disconnect the shaft and manually push slide in. After all that we put back together and it worked perfectly . Guess we just needed to stay home a little later for some unknown reason.
