I have one for each slide on my 5er. That is, turn them all the way to the left if they aren't that way already. Insert the hex key and use the drill to bring the slides in. Now I have never done it myself so you'll have to experiment to find out which way to run the drill to bring them in, unless someone chimes in to tell you. Hopefully what I told you is what you have on your trailer. Good luck.
That procedure is only used if the pump is not running. Their pump is running, so it won't help.

Guys, that special hex key for the hydraulic pump is nothing more than a screwdriver bit turned over and placed in the drill.
