Wrench needed to retrack slides manually?

What kind of wrench should a person have on hand that can be used to retrack a slide if it fails to retrack hydraulically? I have a 2015 Cedar Creek Hathaway Edition 34RE.

I guess it would be good to know what type of slide you are talking about. A hydraulic slide? Picture (s) of the carriage perhaps?

Thank you for your reply. The slides are hydrallic. I called Forest River and the kind sales manager sent me a photo of where to find the motor.

The op already said “hydraulically”.

Yep, you're right, he did and that's why I reiterated that in my reply. I hadn't seen hydraulic slides before, therefore my request for a picture or 2. I've dealt with other types, but not hydraulic.

You'll need a 1/4" hex bit and a battery operated drill that reverses. One direction runs the slides out the other direction brings the slides in. You'll also have to find the slide out solenoid and using a 1/8" allen wrench turn the set screw in the solenoid clockwise to manually open the valve. Be sure to close the solenoid set screw when done manually moving the slide(s). The drill and hex bit fits in the end of the hydraulic motor under the label that says manual drive access. This is a generic work sheet showing what you'll be looking for. http://www.rvupgradestore.com/v/vspf...s/pdf/0071.pdf

x2...however, we found that for our Silverback 33iK we found that our battery operated drill wasn't strong enough to pull the hydraulic slide in. We had to use the electric drill. The battery drill wasn't high speed enough.

Thanks for the link to the directions, dieselguy. Good info.
