every slideout i know of, has a manual crank for this situation.
mine was with the stabs crank and the awning loop bar. i also put my electric tongue jack's manual crank with them.
there was a sheet from my slideout's manufacturer, in with all the other stuff with my manual.

I have not found mine either, and when I asked at the walk through, they did not know. If anyone has found this, I would appreciate the info too.

Look on the opposite side of the camper from where the slide is located. You normally use the same crank handle as used when manually raising and lowering the landing legs. (At least that is where mine is located). My salesman didn't know where it was either, but I found it.

Abruptly, my slide stopped going in & out today, and it is stuck in the out position. The electric motor runs And the slide moves either way less than an inch, then stops, and clicking sounds are then emitted from the slide. It is an '06 Flagstaff 30' fifth wheel. I need help - thanks.

camperjoe, you should always start your own thread, instead of piggybacking on someone else's.
especially if it's a different brand than the OP's. this thread is in the Cherokee owner's section and you have a Flagstaff.

always post in your brand's section unless it's a generic issue, which should be posted under the Tech and Repair section.
i can move your post to the Flagstaff owner's section or in the T&R section, if you'd like.

sounds like something is binding or blocking the slide. have you looked under the slideout for something lodged?
and have you tried manually cranking it?

Actually bikendan, camperjoes post exactly applies to this one.
Post #4 from Hoo Dad should help him get it in, mine is near the rear wheel on the right side.
Mine will not come in when all the way out. It starts in, comes in an inch or so and I get the clicking. I have found if i push in on it from the outside and my sweet wife starts the slide button in, once it gets in about two inches I quit pushing and it goes all of the way in. No problems going out. I have asked about this in the forums, no answers that work so far.
