Question 2012 SP 240 manual slide-out help

Okay, SP 240 fans...forgot to have the demo guy at our dealer show me the correct way to manually extend and/or retract the slide on our TT when we took delivery. My bad...and the "generic" owner's manual that came with the unit is useless. I've located the motor and gear assembly (under the cabinetry of the slide) but I'm not sure about where to place a tool to crank the thing in or out. Should I be looking at the electric motor assembly or the gear box? There is a fitting on the mechanism which holds a cotter pin and looks like it might take a socket with wrench...is this what I should be looking for?

make sure you check the opisite side of your camper directly across from the slide .
There is most likely a hole to install your crank into .
mine is right next to the door .

Yes.
I looked at mine today. With the panel off I can see the shaft spinning while I operated the slide. Mine takes a 5/8" socket.
