Question Kwikee slide motor re-synchronizing

I have a 2009 Adventurer with 3 slide-outs . The kitchen slide was giving me trouble with not going out or returning evenly. I took the coach to a repair dealer and he corrected the problem. He said all he had to do was re-synchronize the two drive motors for the slide. I ask how can I perform this synchronizing and he replied that you have to push the control buttons in a certain sequence to reprogram the motors but he wouldn't tell me the sequence.
Does anyone out there know how to put the drive motors back in sync when they go out of sync? The Kwikee Digisync manual doesn't cover this problem.

If you look in the instructions for the slide, they tell you how to get the slide in after a malfunction. They do not call re-synchronize. On mine it said to remove the control panel from the wall and on the back-side is a button you need to push. It changes the function of the buttons on the front. The "in" button will control 1 end and the "Out" button will control the other end. Once you have the slide in equally a small amount, you hold both buttons at the same time to bring the slide all the way in. Press the button on the back once more to return to normal function and slide motors are re-synchronized.
If you have a bad motor or a motor with a bad synchronizer non of this will work. You will have to replace the motor. Which motor it was is in the code that flashed on your control (i.e. 2-5 rear motor or 1-5 front motor)
