2002 Kropf Executive park model

Hello Campers,
I know, I know this is not a Kropf forum but hoping someone may have had a 2002 Kropf park model. The couple I brought it from did not have manuals so I have to look elsewhere. I am trying to find out how to close slides. I cannot find any switces inside and cannot locate motor to see if it can be manually cranked in. Looked under slides and both are covered and didn't even see the rails the slides would use. I need to move but do not want to with slides out. Any help would be appreciated. Called Kropf and still waiting. Have a blessed new year
David T.

Sorry but I've been on 8 different RV forums for 15 years and I have never seen that brand of trailer in any post or thread.
The only thing I can suggest is to get make and model number of the important things(oven, MW, furnace WH, converter, fridge and so on)and go to the manufacturer's website to see if you can download manuals.

I've never heard of these either, but I've never really looked at park models either. Have you tried the manufacturer? https://kropfind.com/

(update...I see where you called them...sorry). I expect this will be you're best bet. Good luck.

I bet they are Tip-Outs. I had a Golden Falcon park model. They need to have trim removed inside, screws removed, gasket on outside pulled out, remove pink insulation packing, jack up tip out, slide in on thin plywood or OSB.

Or could also be just a manual type but done the same way, I know setting up you would drop the floor then raise the top and manually push the slide out then do all the trim work both inside and out, Taking down I would guess the reverse process, these were not meant to move very often. Kropf built and still builds some very nice park models good luck. I used to have a old Mallard full slide park model and that was how it was done, bought it around 1983 set it up ( by the dealer) at the Jersey shore and it is still there, how many owners since we had it unknown.

It would cost money but perhaps having a mobile RV tech come help might be the way to go. Even he or she is clueless on your model, one would hope their general knowledge of slides and trailers should get them thru. A good visual lesson can be better than written instructions

The OP did say at the end of their post they did contact them and waiting for a reply, a lot of companies shut down over the holidays so they just might be closed.

Being an 02 I doubt they are tip outs. And I highly doubt they are manual, but seeing as it's a park model where the slider only move a couple times, they may very well be manual.
