Slideout problems Rockwood 8313SS

My super slide stopped working. Would not go in or out. The motor spins but will not turn the two shafts. I'm able to crank the slide in and out with an open end wrench. The slide is square and level. The motor is a Thomson Saginaw Performance Pak. Does anyone know where I may get the gear box or information on it. My selling dealers parts department was no help at all. Hellp Please!

Can you take a pic of where motor is and post?
Normally right at the motor to shaft.

If you have somebody run the switch, is it possible for you to see if the output shaft off the gearbox is turning? If it is you probably sheared the woodruff key.

Output shaft

I can see where the emergency hand crank inserts, and that spins freely when the slide switch is pushed. The shaft with the square tubes do not move when the switch is moved. If it is the key would the whole assembly need to be removed. Thanks for your help!

Does your shaft resemble this?

If the key is sheared that shaft should still turn, just the primary gear in the middle doesn't turn.

It took some on-the-fly engineering but I did find a way to remove the shaft on mine without removing the whole unit

I do not have the shaft out yet. Mine has round shafts with square tubes over them. It appears that there is covers on each side of the box that the shafts come out of.

I would also consider calling Forrest River -- they have been EXTREMELY HELPFUL in my dealing with them (through my dealer). The last time we sent it back to Forrest River for a crack in the filon they fixed so much else -- at not cost to me.
