Random Info Slide Outs

On my 8526RLWS the Wardrobe slide is made by NORCO. If you ever need to manually crank it open or closed (no power or bad motor) you must remove the snap screw covers, unscrew the top cloth covered trim plywood, attach a flex cable (looks like a screw driver extension you most likely found in a drawer but has a 1/4 inch socket on one end and a shank for your power drill on the other) to the rear stub on the motor.

The main sofa and dinette slides are made by Lippert and the LONG 52" crank was missing from my camper on delivery. (a shorter one for the front landing gear was there, but not the one for the slides). Lippert said they shipped one with every chassis, but Forest River did not put it in the finished camper. When notified by my dealer, FR did find one in the factory and are shipping it to me no charge.

Update on the manual crank for the main slides. The crank they were talking about is the 24 inch one that came with the camper. It was located on the aft bulkhead (door side) of the basement compartment. That crank handle works the slides as well as the landing gear.

Not well documented is the fact that the stub shaft (located under the slide) works the OPPOSITE slide. Thus the left side stub shaft moves the right side slide in and out.

If the motor on one side fails, close the opposite slide electrically and insert the 24 inch crank handle in the hole in the closed slide and engage the stub shaft.

Rotate the crank handle to manually close the opposite slide.

If for some reason BOTH slides must be closed manually (battery shorted out or otherwise inop), you will have to crawl under one slide and using 1/2 turns close the opposite slide until you can close it enough to insert the crank into the outside slide skirt hole. Then go around to the partially closed side and insert the crank handle to completely close the original slide. Once that one is completely closed, you can go back to the now closed slide to finish closing the partly closed slide using the hole in the slide skirt.

Hope that makes sense and you NEVER have to actually do it. LOL

The info on the wardrobe slide is still correct.
