3100ss slide info

We recently traded our Thor for a SS 3100 which has the dinette and sofa slide. No info in the packets on the slide. I suspect it may be a Lippert design as I am familiar with the Swinteck (sp) which we had on the Thor and this one does not appear to be the same.
We have had it out for a trip and it appears to be working ok but it does make peculiar noises making me a bit nervous at the moment. The demo guy at the dealer said to run the slide in until the motor and it's gearing make a ratcheting sound and then to release the "in" switch. Is this correct?
Any way to obtain or down load a instruction manual?
If the slide fails how does one manually crank it in?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as we are 900 miles away from home at the moment

Correct if it is a LCI through frame electric slide.
Run out until you hear a few ratchets (clicks) and the same when all the way in.
That is the accepted method of operation.
