Tracer 3150 Awning & Slide Out Manually

Hey fellow Tracer 3150 Owners. I love the unit but was thinking while reading some of the posts and I realized I don't know how to either extend or retract the awning if something went wrong. Also I don't know how to bring in the two slides.

Can somebody help me with either some pictures or some directions on how to roll up the awning if the motor goes out and the location to manually extend or retract the slides on the same unit?

Thanks for help and happy camping

Mike

to the forum!

Mike, I wish that I could help you, but I don't have the paperwork with me that tells how to work the awning manually. Other forum members may be able to tell you.

I don't have the Tracer 3150, but on my LaCrosse 303 There is a access panel about 1' square located under the trailer, curb side. I believe this is where the slide motor is located and where you would manually open and close the slide.

Forum member RV Guy is PT management and he's on this forum on a regular basis. I'm sure he can help you better than I can. You may also contact Prime Time with any question using their contact page on ther web site. They are excellent at getting back to you very quickly.

I hope this helps.
Good luck and happy camping.

My Tracer slide motors are on top of the slides. There is a flexible extension with in the TT that will fit in the side of the motor. You can use a drill to turn it.

I don't know about the awning.

Assuming you took your drill camping of course.

Thanks for the replies. The reason I asked was because we were out camping and realized I should probably know just in case. Don't foresee a problem but you never know.

Usually I don't take a drill with me anymore since the stabilizer jacks are electric now. LOL

Wango - good question. If you'd like, contact our customer service department for assistance at www.primetimerv.com

In the mean time, I will try to dig up some information on your request to post here. I bet there are lots of other folks wondering the same thing.

Me too, we were searching for that same think this weekend on my primetime 303rks. Got a wrench for stabilizers, one for the front jack, but couldn't figure out how you manually do slides or awning. I also asked my dealer, they seem to have no clue either.

I really feel better knowing that I am not alone on this one. Thanks for helping RV Guy and I have heard that if anybody would know it would be you. I don't expect any trouble but just want to be ready if need be.

Mike

have you ever tried to slide it in manually??? this is a engineering night mare... the 12" cable does little good for a 3 foot slide out...looks like a blunder to me.

Does the handle for the "A" frame jack also work for the electric stabilizers? I've only had my trailer (Tracer 2600 RLS) for a few weeks and already had the rear stabilizer quit working. Fortunately I found the loose wires on the frame mounted terminal block fairly quickly and tightening them fixed the problem.
