How do I access manual slide out crank

So I have a 2016 Wildwood Xlite 230BHXL. I know there should be a manual crank that I can run with a drill to get the slide out, but not sure best way to access it. It looks to me like I either need to cut into the tyvek in the bottom but wanted to see if anyone hear van confirm.

Long story on why the slide out (along with some other electrical components) isn't working, but pretty sure I fried something and reversed the polarity and I need to get the slide out to assess the main panel that is tucked along side it when the slide is in.

Hard to say without actually seeing what you. There are several different slide out mechanisms. Since you have an enclosed belly you might look on the frame opposite the slide out. Sometimes there is a hole there to access the motor for manual operation. Wish I could be more help. Kind of a shot in the dark. Good luck.

Try this and see if it helps.

Your converter should have reverse polarity protection built in. Open your converter and look for the orange fuses and see it one of those are blown. There is also a resettable breaker located on the frame just behind the battery. It's a small box with wires attached and a small button on it. Push that button and see if things come back to life.

I have checked the two orange 40amp fuses that I could see with my current limited visibility and they both looked fine. Also checked the short stop breaker up front and that was fine as well. Even bypassed it just to see and while I do get lights, stereo, and 12v water pump, I am not getting power to slide, awning, or stabilizer jacks.

I had the dreaded water tank drop out so in the process of fixing it I had a buddy welding some extra angle iron to the frame. I did detach the batter cables as well as all the cables in that front box that attach to the frame. What I missed was a ground and neutral that were towards the back of the camper and I think those still being attached is what screwed up something in the main panel.

Oh and not to mention when I hooked up my truck after we were done it instantly fried my wiring harness and some of the wires in that front distribution box.

I have fixed any wiring issues and looked for shorts and everything looks good there. Some semi mechanics I have talked to said the fried wiring harness on my truck is a tell tale sign of reversed polarity.

OK, There is another fuse panel in your trailer (probably anyway). The LCI control panel. In every trailer I've owned it was located behind a removable panel with exception of my current trailer where in was sandwiched in the wall. This where you find fuses and relays for what you have that isn't working. Look for a panel that is secured with screws instead of staples. That's strange about the back feed into your truck. Never heard of that one before.

The LCI control panel looks like this. Mine is under kitchen sink.

I will check that shortly... There is a panel both under the sink and under the fridge that have screws and I did find it odd there werent any fuses in the main panel listed for all the LCI stuff.

Nope that LCI panel isnt in either panels I can open up. I was able to pull the wires out a bit on one of the stabilizer jacks and it actually has one of those short stop breakers just like the main one at the front of the camper frame. I am wondering if they just used those instead if fuses.

I am pretty positive at this point that I either have to go up through the tyvek or I might be able to pull off the wheel well cover as it seems like the slide out motor is mounted directly above that. Obviously going to try the wheel well cover first and hopefully I get lucky.

I looked at this all yesterday evening and I am feeling like I am gonna find my main issue somewhere in the main panel assuming there still isn't another panel hidden away somewhere.

I was hoping we could avoid having to cut stuff up to get your problems fixed. I'm pretty sure you have an LCI board in there somewhere. I found my current one by using the remote and listening for the relay click of my awning. I found it in the pass through sandwiched between wall panels and stapled closed. That made a lot of sense. The others were close to the hot water heater which also made a lot of sense as well. Good luck getting this resolved.
