Slide out issue

Hi all, looking for some help. I have 2010 freedom express 280rls. I've had it since new. No issues until last weekend. I opened my couch/kitchen slide out now it won't come back in. No power, nothing. I searched on here and found its probably the fuse in the front frame near the battery. Problem is I cannot find it. I looked and looked. I also cannot find where to do this manually. I have the manual hand crank but no clue where to use it. The manual just says the manual crank is in the motor transmission housing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi, the bracker on my tt is located on the right side as you face the tt just under the corner. You will have to get on your back and look up to see it. You should see some wires going to what looks like a terminal that's the braker. Some of these breakers have a small black button on them you have to push to reset it's hard to see. To crank it in you will look for a small hole in the fram acrossed from the slide. My front slide hole is in the front steps area.

Here are some pictures that probably relate to above statement.

Fonzie supplied good Info,but when using the manual crank on the slide be careful not to (Over Travel) on (Some) units the (Clutch,overide) is bypassed,allowing Damage to the flange trim (In or Out). Youroo!!

Update, I still cannot find any fuse near the battery. Only fuse is for my fringe electric jack. All wires from the battery go into the trailer. I tried my switch again and I have power to bring in the slide only. My slide is now all the way in won't go out. Is it the switch. Lastly I also cannot find and where to manually crank the slide. I have the extension as pictured above but no hole in the frame anywhere. Any ideas?

Look behind the battery box. Mine (Flagstaff 5th wheel) were hidden and I had to actually remove the battery box to find them. They were so hard to change that I immediately replaced the 30 amp single blow fuse with an auto reset kind I bought at AutoZone. Do not break off the tabs as they will not fit in the OEM sockets if you do.
