I don't have that model but most Wildwoods seem to share the same components.
Mine blew the fuse on the second use. The fuse was on a control panel under the fridge. I have the electric motor/screw drive (not cables). There is a way to put a wrench on the motor to bring in the slide manually. The procedure is in the owners manual.

I had this issue with my similar model trailer awhile back. there is an override button located on right side, under the slide itself on the inside. you have to stick your finger into a hole and you will feel a soft button (small). you press this and it should allow the button to work and the slide to move in very small increments.

or like mentioned above it could be the fuse. In my case the entire slide wiring harness had to be replaced to fix this issue.

I also have this exact trailer. I am also on the hunt to figure out how to manually operate the slide out. The manual does not give an answer, at least not the manual I was provided with from the dealer. What I did find is a controller box under the back bottom bunk bed that you would have to push the small reset button six times and hold it on the seventh time while someone uses the switch to bring it in. What I don't understand about that is isn't that have to use power to do that??? I haven't tried that but I think the fix would be is to have your truck hooked up to the trailer when using the slide out being that the trailer is normally only provided with one 12v battery that way it's using your truck battery power also to operate the slide out. I know my one 12v battery on the trailer is not enough power alone to operate the slide out

I had the same experience as Revirtserof, I have also not found a manual method to open/close the slide out and had to use that over ride controller box in the manner he mentions. now i didnt need the truck hooked up to the trailer for this to work.

Do you only have one 12v battery on your trailer? And your slide out works to put it out and in? Interesting. Mine barely starts to slide out like 2" then it stops and it makes the noise but sounds like it's struggling with not enough power with only one battery.

no i have dual batteries.

the slide out only moving 2"s at a time is what i experienced. the wiring harness had to be replaced under warranty. i had to use the over ride as you described to get my slide out to work until that warranty work was done.

So your saying that even with dual batteries the slide out didn't work? Thanks for the info by the way

Correct, we where on our second camping trip when the slide out decided to not slide back in when it was time to leave. that is when i had to use the manual override process. I have had no further issues since and we have taken it out 10 times after that trip.

Just purchased 2017 Heritage Glen 282RK. New to TT RVing. Towing is okay, still working on backing up. Trying to find information on manual slide out operation. Manual is not helpful. Don't want to be in a situation where this may be an issue. Found a small opening in the skirting but the hole is not lined up for use with the hand crank. Any suggestions?
