slide out "safety catch"

I have a 2013 Primetime 235 FBS. I am trying to MANUALLY extend my slide out room but it will not move when I turn the 1/4" drive on the rear of the motor.

I think this might be because of the "safety catch that prevents the slide from moving when underway. HOW do I "disconnect" this so
the slide will move. The owners manuals are pitiful..! They tell you almost zero....

Perhaps there is another reason it won't extend but, this seems to
be the logical reason..

Is there a reason you cannot extend them under 12V power?

I don't have power to the slide out switch because the controller tripped out.
The controller is located BEHIND the slide. Until I can manually move the slide out I can't reset the controller..!!

I do not have your particular camper, but with the Rockwood there is a cabinet with hinges on both sides. There are two hinges on one side and only one on the other. If you remove the single hinge the door will open to reveal the controller directly behind it. You do not need to move the slide to access the controller.

Yes, I have the same thing but, the access panel is way in the back and, the slide is in the way. There is only 6" of space and, I can't get back there... ugh.

It's unbelievable that my owners manual doesn't say ANYTHING about these things..!!
Thanks for your comments.
Do you know what brand of slide out motor your RV has..?
I'm just trying to verify my Norco accuslide actually DOES have a controller / brain.. with a reset button.

Unfortunately mine is a Schwentek slide. I do not know if the accuslide has a controller.
