233s owners. Slide out question
Oh, I see. I stand completely corrected! When reading through the thread, I got attached to the owner with the 23IKSS, which has both slides, and what I kept referencing.

My apologies Eric F. and fonzie for not re-reading the original question before answering!

The 233s is a single through-frame slide. You don't need to cut the motor wires, just unhook the battery and shore power.

That's what I thought. I saw no reason to cut anything if the battery was already dead.

Thanks

This is good to know!
thanks

Okay, I am a little confused by all this. I do not have a 233ss but a 23SS. The slide fuse is not a resettable one. It has blown once, and all I did was use the crank on the fixture under the couch to crank the slide out. So what is all the talk about not being on shore power or using a battery disconnect, why not just pull the fuse? I plan on changing mine to a resettable one in the near future since it is under the trailer and the not the nicest place to get to.

Pulling the fuse will work as well. During my original walk through of my TT the technician said I needed to cut the wires to the slide motor if I ever lost power or the slide stopped working in order to retract it manually. I thought he didn't know what he was taking about and I was right!

I had a 2012 23ss. The slide failed the day I brought it home.. All I did was crank the slide in using the connecter under the sofa. The fuse located on the tongue had blown. The dealer sent a tech to the house and he replaced the fuse with a self resetting breaker. Never had a problem after that.

According to the documentation provided with my trailer from Flagstaff there is no mention of having to disconnect any wiring when manually operating the dinette slide. Whether the battery is dead or not the motor is still isolated from the power source buy the switch. As long as the switch is not being activated while manually operating the slide there should not be an issue.
