SV 294 slide - manual override

Just bought this unit and I was not shown where the manual crank override is. Can the slide even be opened manually?

usually on passenger side near or close to your steps there will be a hole in which you slide manual crank in if its the dinning/ living room slide.

Tech support tells me the SV-294 does not have a manual override. Sure hope we never have any problems!

have you looked under the unit and looked for the gear motor ? Ifind it hard to believe that it doesnt have some way to manually bring slide in .
But I am probally wrong !

Yes, I found the motor. I have to remove panels under the sink to unhook it, then I can puah the slide out. Very tricky unless you are very skinny and flexible.
