Slide out issue

Hello all,

Looking for any tips/tricks on a slide out that stopped during retraction and won't move. On a 2015 Rockwood 2505s.

My sister was camping and her mother in law passed. In turn they were hustling to pack and go when the slide was being retracted it stopped mid way and wouldn't move. She called me for advice and I gave her some basics to check but no luck. She ended up leaving the trailer and I am going to pick it up today for them. I tried to get her to manually close it but she said the under side of the slide is covered so you cant see the motor/gear box so I would assume it has an access port in the slide wall?

Anyhow, its about a 3 hour drive up and I am not familiar with their trailer so I wanted to glean any info from you guys before heading up. Tools/tips/tricks etc! I am sure with some troubleshooting I can figure it out but thought I'd hit up this wonderful group as someone usually has a same model and might be able to give me something. And yes I did do a quick search but thought maybe someone with the same model might have some insight.

Thanks in advance.

If her trailer is same as in video then she has a Schwintek slide system. See you tube videos for manual operation.

I found this video very informative on the Schwintek system. It shows you how to do an electronic override and a manual override depending on what your problem is. My dealer tried to explain it to me over the phone and I was lost but this is like a made for dummies video and had very good instruction.

I've attached some Schwintek manuals for you.

You'll need to find the controller; the LEDs will help you figure out what the problem is. It looks like this:

It could be located anywhere. Mine is behind this "door" that has 2 hinges on one side and one hinge on the other. You have to unscrew the one hinge and then it opens like a door.

Thanks for the manuals. I downloaded those to my phone, hopefully NOT for future use! But you never know when you might need to help somebody out at the campground even if you're not having trouble.
