Manual Slide Extension Control Rods Detached

I tried to manually operate our Slide outs (just for practice) and found that the extension control rods for both room slides were no longer attached. I was able to pull the rods out and can see a pair of holes at the end of both where it was probably pined to the motor override shaft. I can also see some rust which I'm assuming is what caused the connecting pin to fail

I haven't removed the underbelly yet because that is a pretty big job on the Sabre. I'm also thinking of waiting to see if the techs at the Goshen rally can help me out.

Has this happened to anyone else and can you tell me what's going on under there??
