Question about the slide on the rockwood 26004

I have a question concerning the "automatic slide" on my 2010 Rockwood 2604 trailer. The question is if the automiatic slide ever quits working how can I "manually retract" the slide? Also where is the motor located for the slide? Thanks for your help...

There should be a manual crank stub on the motor which is usually just under the slide out. It will look like a small "T" sticking out of the motor housing. You should have a jack handle that came with the unit that you connect to it and can crank it in or out manually...although it takes some time and a bit of shoulder burn...let me know if you can't find it and I can post pics of it to make it easier.

Pictures would be nice....Is the manual crank stub located underneath the trailer? If so, how do I find it, as the bottom of the trailer is enclosed. You can tell I am new at this...Thanks for your help.

If you determine the manufacturer of your slide mechanism (our is Lippert) you can usually go to their web site and find a manual for them. Lippert's manuals have good pictures with instructions for manually retracting the slides.

My slide out is electric and this is what the hand crank looks like, the last pic shows where the electric motor the open end slips over the spring clip and then you begain to crank. The motor is located under the slide out.

Found my wrench and looked under the trailer and found where the motor for the slide is located, they have made a covered place under the trailer that you have to unscrew and fold it down to get to the motor. Anyway I found it with your help and I sure thank you for assisting me.

Know I didn't....WOW....Thanks for being observant. Saturday I moved my camper back to open the slide out so we could get it ready for camping by the end of the month and did not have a chance to check the camper out because it has been raining for the last 3 days. Where do you live? you have earned a steak dinner for this.

Sheared Bolt is never good. How old is this camper and does this happen often?
