On the opposite side from the slide on the exterior. There is a hole on the lower valence you put the hand crank through.

But does that also mean if your battery is completely drained your slide might come out???

OK so you probably have a Lippert electric slide. That is the type I have on my unit. Here is manual. No, if battery is drained, slide will not come out. Some units will come with slide locks that you install before travelling, some units don't. I have the slide locks on my unit and use all the time.

On a 23IKSS it's a Schwintek slide curbside, and a regular Lippert through-frame roadside. I never heard anyone say cut the motor on a Schwintek - that's dumb. If you need to bring one in manually, you unplug the motors from the controller and push the slide in, and then reconnect to the controller so the motor brake is powered. If a motor isn't spinning, you have to loosen the hold screw on each motor and pull them up out of the track and then push the slide in. After you get it in, push the motors back down to engage the track, seat the screw, and plug them back into the controller.

I don't even know where the controller is. I have a switch on my master control panel to bring it in and out. When I told the tech , "you mean unplug the motor" he said no, that the motor used butt connectors and would have to cut.

No, that's not correct for a Schwin... Take a look yourself and you'll see there's a ribbon cable from the motors. The actual controller is behind the fixed door (or panel - some say FR didn't use a screwed shut door on theirs but instead a recessed, screwed-in panel) at the e-center. If I had that unit, you bet that door would get hinges and a catch!

Even your other slide-out - the standard Lippert through-slide - you just disconnect the battery since the feed comes direct from the battery through an auto-resetting automotive circuit breaker. This is why we install battery disconnects AT the battery and not at the power center with FR TTs.

Hmmm. I will take a peek.

Thanks.

You bet! The Schwins have their quirks, but still better than cable controlled slide-outs! They are a good problem solver, like in the case of your 23IKSS where you have the opposing slide-outs that won't allow for installation of two sets of conventional slides.

The real thing with the Schwin is to make sure it always stays in-sync. If you notice the slide not coming in evenly, address it right away!

Since you don't have a Schwintek, there is no controller. Only a switch that operates motor slide.

fonzie, the 23IKSS has a Schwin for the kitchen slide AND a Lippert through-frame for the opposing slide. He has a controller. The switch is remote from it.
