manual slide operation

I have a 2012 Rockwood 2304 Ultra lite and have been pretty pleased for the first few years. Went out boondocking this week and the slide wouldn't operate at all. Turned out it was the main fuse but it did make me think about how to manually operate the slide. The owners manual doesn't look anything like what's under the slide out and it got me thinking that I should know how to manually extend.
Anyone care to educate me?

What slide out system do you have? Lippert, Schwintek or another?

Sorry, we're up in the mountains so had to wait until we came back to town to post reply. The manual is pretty non-specific and I cant find any identification on the slide system due to mud etc. The stabilizers are Lippert so I'm assuming the slide out is the same. Any help would be much appreciated.

Without knowing which lippert slide you have the best I can do is the support document site.
I have the documents for 6 different lippert slide-outs.

Does the slide have metal tracks on the outside, or gears underneath? Lippert makes both types.
