Found my issue. Red wire came undone at the motor, so override doesn't work since red and black are the power supply.
Tried like hell to manually push with no luck. Gonna try this wknd with more guys.
Should just need to pull the motor and solder the wire back

Does anyone know if you can simply unplug the power, shore and battery, to release the brakes? I cannot reach in there to hit the button however many times it takes.
You need to disconnect both motors to attempt to push in . do not travel with motors unhooked . they keep the slide from moving . you should be able to get to motor from inside or out . very easy removal i think just one spring then the motor lifts out . some may have a set screw

Yes, I has a set screw so I just need to move the slide a little out so I can remove the screw and I will be a business.

Ok I may be wrong but hear me out. The trailer you have is a sister to ours the flagstaff 27rlws. So that means the kitchen slide and the dining room slides are not schwintek's. Only the wardrobe slide is a schwintek. There is a hole in the skirting at the rear of the kitchen slide. We have a tool that came with the trailer that if you insert into that hole till you mate it with a shaft coming out of the frame and you can turn it to move the slide manually.

It's a schwintek. I have the hole on the kitchen slide and it moves the dinette slide. That was the first thing I tried, then I realized I had to learn about the schwintek.

I don't have a hole on that side. I'll surely give it another look tomorrow.
I welcome any advice.

We have a hole and shaft to the rear and below the storage compartment door. So I'm just wondering if the one on the kitchen side turns the dining slide if the one on the dining slide will turn the kitchen slide

Problem solved. Was able to get help and push the slide open enough to pull the set screw. Then soldered the broken wire.
Thanks for all the replies.

Thanks for all the replies.

In order to move the slide- did you just cut power to the camper? Or did you also disconnect motors?
