I just acquired a 2006 Rockwood TT 8295 ss. The kitchen/couch slide runs in an out but I can't seem to find a manual back up location. Any one out there to point me?

Welcome to the forum from Dawsonville, GA. When the slide is open there should be something that looks like a small T sticking out where you would connect a turning handle and manually retract the slide by turning it. Necer hard to use this before (Hope I don't jinks myself) LOL.

where do I find the handle? under the couch? there is nothing on the out side either on the slide or in the wheel well to indicate a manual system. I am afraid this one not have one and hope I'm wrong.

Access Panel

The factory left a cut-out on the underside of our Crusader 270RET for access to the gear box and motor. Check to see if in fact you have an access panel there, if so, you will need a ratchet and a socket to turn the gear box drive: Does the motor no work at all?

Often times it's laying in a storage hatch somewhere. If you ever had scissor jacks, it looks a lot like a big version of that. Mine reminds me of the same handle/thing that my pop-up's jacks were, only much bigger.

On edit- my manual slide port is on the opposite side of the camper to the slide out itself, right next to my entry door.

fyi, the slide does work. I'm concerned about getting it out, loosing power and getting it stuck out. I guess if it gets stuck out for more than 4 hours I need to seek a mechanic's help immediately.

First welcome to the forums!

How did you acquire the TT? New?, Used?, Dealer?, Private seller?

You could always go ask the seller - especially if it is a dealer.

That said, the crank could be anything from a socket attachment of a 4" extension to a actual crank bar - it is probably located in your basement (some will clip to the side)

Having said THAT, here is a tip: buy a socket + 6-8" extension that fits the manual slide crank. Take 18v cordless drill as backup. Problem solved

Having said THAT, in 6 years of using slides (Knocks on wood) I have not had a slide motor fail (they will operate on battery power BTW)
