Unable to extend large slide
Yesterday we pulled into a campground and were unable to extend the large slide. We have a Rockwood 8285WS. The only sound was like bad gears not engaging. Manual operation also would not work. Also the lights on the slide out potion of the RV, the sink light, and range hood stopped working. I see no connection, but thought I'd mention it. I dropped the belly covered and found the clevis pin had dropped out of the manual rod attachment. I reattached it, but I still could not move the slide. I opened the gear box and all the gears look good. It seems to me the problem is inside the shaft that the motor and gear box is mounted to. Doe anyone know how I can check this out. We have been on the road for 5 weeks and this is our first slide problem. If I cannot solve this can anyone recommend someone for me to take this to. I am presently in Springfield, IL heading for SE Iowa Monday. Any advice would be appreciated.
