Manual slide retract?

Where can I go to find out how to manually retract my slide in case of electrical or mechanical malfunction? Owner Manual says nothing. In my case, it's for a Forest River Evo Stealth (21' travel trailer). I've had one close call where I couldn't get it in, and couldn't leave campsite until I did.

I have a different trailer but mine came with this long bar. You put it in a hole and turn it. Some slides its under the slide, some its on opposite side, some its inside the trailer..

If you have the schwintek slide mechanism go to youtube and look at the video. Hope the the manufacture gives you access to the screw that disengages the motors.

If Hydraulic, there should also be a youtube video and this will be a little easier.

If electric you should have a handle and there will be a hole in the skirt of your camper on the oposite side of the slide to insert the handle and crank it in or out. This is easy to do also.
