manually extending and retracting slide

I have a 2005 rockwood and the bedroom slide does not work. The large slide works fine, all power is on, all lights-plugs-a/c-fridge are working. The bedroom slide worked great last time we retracted it. Now nothing happens when I push the switch. How do I reach the manual override under the bed? My arms aren't long enough. Is there a special LONG tool for this? I can't see any possible way to reach it from the top or bottom side. Could it be another fuse somewhere else? I'm camping this weekend and just found out the slide isn't working. Any info would be great to hopefully repair the problem but it won't slow us down from going camping. Might just make it a little cramped though.

The only control for a slidout is the use of a hand crank wrinch that you attach to the motor assemble. This is found underneath the slide. The crank was given to you when you bought the trailer.

As far as testing why the motor is not working, someone else here will have to help. Or may be able to call a dealer service for some over the phone help.
