The deadbolt may be more challenging. If it happens to break off in the lock here are some suggestions..



I even ran accross someone who straightened our a small fishing hook and got the same results

For the master slide, it is just to the left of the main entry door (again a little hole that the wrench will fit in.) For drivers bunkhouse slide, you need to open the passenger (kitchen) slide first, then get under the slide to open. To open, insert slide wrench into the hole, make sure it grips on to the slide crank (you might have to look under the unit to see this) and turn counter clockwise. To close, do the opposite.
Thought I would post a couple of pics here to help you all with where the manual slide cranks are located (sorry the pictures aren't that great): and remember manual cranks are on the opposite side of the slide you want to crank out or in.

Hole where crank is for master/kitchen slide:



Hole where the crank is for the bunkhouse with outside kitchen:



Once you get the outdoor kitchen slide out, you will be able to see the crank for the opposite bunkhouse slide underneath the slide:



Hope this helps everyone!

You are welcome QCCowboy, Glad my method worked for you!

My DW tried to put the wrong key in the lock and it damaged the cylinder.
Here is a link to my album. I posted the pictures in there for everyone to read.

Just wondering if anyone looked at their 2013's to figure out where the extra room came from to put in this pull out pantry?? Any other new 2014's out there with any extra goodies they weren't expecting?

I don't have a hole in the drivers side to put the crank...
