I think that's the one I've seen, and is for the smaller slideouts, like the closet slideout they show, using the Schwintek system that has an in-wall motor attached to each slide rail ; rather than the type that has a single motor above the slideout and a cable system for closet slide-outs like mine, or the bigger system for room-slides.

If there's a different video, then I'd appreciate a link
Very correct statement that most fail to realize.

The Schwintek is an in wall slide system. (closet/wardrobe slides)
Two motors drive two rails attached to the slide side walls.

Then there is the through frame slide system. (dinette/sofa slides)
Two rails under the slide go through the frame and driven by a rack system.

And finally the above floor slide system. (bed slides)
Similar to the through frame but completely enclosed inside the trailer. (usually under the bed)

All completely different.
