Bedroom Slideout Question

I have a 2017 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen Fifth Wheel. It has four slide outs and three of the slide outs have a way to manually crank the slide in and out if necessary however, I do not see a way on the outside of the bedroom slide out to manually crank the slide in or out. How do you get this slide in manually if necessary. Also the slideout mechanism is not visible when the slide is out like the other three. Question No. 2; How do you lubricate the bedroom slide mechanism. Thanks in advance for the help.

If it is a Swintek I do not believe lubrication is necessary. To access the roll out mechanisim on mine requires removing the mattress and opening up the top of the bed frame to access it. Not an easy job.

Did you get what looks like an allen wrench on the end of a spring about 1 foot long?
If so, that goes into the motor for the slide out and you can crank it in and out that way.
The motor is probably on top of the slide, if you look down the edge when it is about half way out, you will see it.
