Alternate Override Modes—All Controllers
If none of the previous override methods retract the slide-out room, it may be possible to manually retract
the slide-out room by one of the following alternate methods. Both of these procedures will only be
possible if there is access to the described areas.
1. Manually retract the slide-out room using a ratchet and socket attached to the end of the coupler (Fig. 20) to
move the slide-out room.
A. Remove the motor. Follow steps 1-6 under the Manual Override Mode section.
When manually retracting the slide-out room, make sure that both sides of the slide-out room move
together. Damage to the slide-out room may result if movement is not uniform.
Moving parts can pinch, crush or cut. Keep clear and use caution.
B. Place a ratcheting wrench with a 3” extension and 5/8” deep well socket through the motor access
opening and seat the socket onto the coupler (Fig. 20A).
C. Using the ratcheting wrench with socket, and alternating from one side to the other, turn the
wrench to retract the slide-out room.
Note: One person per side of the slide-out room (two total) with ratcheting wrench and socket will
expedite the process. Make sure that both sides of the slide-out room retract together uniformly.
The slide-out room moves approximately ¼” for every 30-40 degree turn of the wrenchhttps://forestriverinc.com/files/Component-Manuals/Slide%20Room/Lippert%20-%20Slide%20Out%20Model%20Slim%20Rack%20Owner's%20M anual.pdf
