I have a 2010 2604SS the manual slide operation is as Alwaysumptin states except I do not have an access panel. I opened the under belly below the slide and found the motor and the place to use a socket to crank the slide open/closed. If I ever have to crank it I will make an access panel. As for cranks, I have 2. One is for the stabilizers and the other is for the electric tongue jack (useless) have a 3/4 socket and a long ratchet handy.

I've had to use my electric tongue jack's crank handle several times myself, because if you happen to run the worm gear setup beyond it's limits, it will thread itself off of the end, and not allow you to reverse it, and you need the crank to repair this manually. Randy

I have three cranks. One may be for the electric awning maybe? Guess I had better look into that next.

Location of manual slideout

I took some photos and hope this will help anyone who is looking for those manual slide out places.

Picture one is of the hole in the side, you will have to shine a flashlight in there to see the post that you put the tool on to turn the slide out. This is for the bedroom slideout and the slide is on the other side of the trailer.

Picture #2 is the steps right at the entrance to the livingroom area.

Picture #3 shows the post that you put the tool on to turn the slide out. It's actually at the backwall of the steps.

This is a 2010 Windjammer

The Windjammer and the 8000 series(as in 8315SS, 8382SS, etc.) are pretty much alike. Some have the manual override access hole opposite of the slide, and some have the manual override at the motor/gearbox.
This all depends on the slide manufacturer.
