2 rear slide question

I just took position of a 2014 293REX 5th wheel last Sunday and finished taking the box of information and putting it in order. I found no information on the slides. I'm pretty sure the bedroom slide is a Lippert (by the sound) but understand the two rear slides may be cable driven and that's all I know. I want to get as much info as possible incase I run into a "slide malfunction" as I have been through that with my 2013 Crossroads Cruiser Air.

In your other post, you mentioned the ratcheting sound of the 2 rear slides when fully deployed/retracted which would indicate that they're electric operated with clutches. The pictures on-line show the bedroom wardrobe slide is a Schwintek drive.

If you look under the rear slides you should find a input shaft off the drive gearbox to fit a rachet on to operate them manually.

Lots of info on Lippert's site on the Schwintek slide drive.
