I'm interested in this thread about slide locks. I have a 2503S and the slide confuses me a bit. (First RV with slide for me)
It's different from other slides I've seen (like brother's fifth wheel). The 2503S does not have any mechanical / manual means to extend or retract. Motor drive only. There are four toothed bars on the outside of the slide. Two upper, two lower.
When I asked the dealer during pick up inspection where's the crank - well there is none.
When I asked the dealer how I retract if no power there was a lot of "checking" by phone. He came back with
Remove a trim panel 2 screws.
Disconnect Motor Power Connector
Push Slide in by hand
Reconnect Motor Power Connector
Since there's no crank or fitting to crank I had to believe that's how it's done.
But I am concerned. If you can "push" it in what keeps it from just as easily moving out?
Anyone have a similar slide design? Have any thoughts about this? Ever tried to move it without power?
Answers might me scary, but will be aprreciated.
