233s owners. Slide out question

I picked up my new 233s today. During the walk through the technician told me that if my battery died, the only way the manual crank would work to bring in the slide out would be if I cut the wires to the motor. I don't understand how cutting the wires to a motor that is already dead would make a difference. Am I missing something?

Hmm, that's a good question. It could be that with a dead battery that there is still *some* juice left in it. Enough to make the motors lock in position. Do you have a battery disconnect (that actually disconnects power to the slide motor(s))? That should accomplish the same as cutting the wires.

On edit: I don't know your camper nor slide mechanism, though.

I have a disconnect. I asked and all he said was that the wires had to be cut for it to work. I may just have to give it a shot with the battery disconnected and see what happens...

Kitchen Slide Out Shamrock 23IKSS Question

Also you have to disconnect the battery. There is a motor park mode to prevent the slide from coming out during travel. It is wired directly to the battery. Using the battery disconnect switch will not work.


Also search for Scwhintek on this forum and YouTube.

Interesting. I don't recall being told that during our walkthrough. The IOM doesn't mention that either. I'm pulling mine out for storage this week for trip so I may have to try it (without cutting wires) and see what happens.

Thanks for all the info. The biggest difference in mine is that there is a manual crank to bring the slide back in. You don't push it in after unplugging it.

Glindz233S, let me know how that goes. The technician said the motor was butt connected of course so you cannot just "unplug it!"

Where do you crank your slide from? Outside trailer underneath entrance steps?

Good to know. New information, for me. That's an argument in favor of the practice by some users of installing a disconnect switch on the battery box, for convenience. It's also an argument against that switch being off, while traveling.
