Unscrew bent arm. From both ends of it. Slide shoukd work. You can straighten arm back up and reinstall with new screws a little off if old holes. Did thus with my 1999 Dutchstar years ago. Forgot one side lock. Near drivers sear. Won't happen again. Now wrap locking joint. With velcroed arm rest to remind me.

Welcome to the forum.
First thing to do is unlock it.
Some reading you need to learn how things operate.
All slide spec's are in QT's 1 & 2. Torque bushing info there also.
You have one slide and you need more than one person to push slide in if it has dropped down the ramp after releasing the torque bushings.
The cog wheel may have jumped a few holes in the slide rail that will be needed to be realined, once the torque bushings have been released. The slide will be needed with help pushed flush in the recessed wall opening and slide locked and than torque bushings re tightened.

He is talking about the slide locking bars and the one you didn't release.
Only one fuse in the fuse panel shown in the owners guide.
You will need to check the motor location maybe behind your LP gas tank and possibly all wire connections corroded, which need to be cleaned up and reconnected for two wire with motor wiring leads connected.
Your constant pressing of button may have broken the spring tension of contacts in switch or switch is open because it did not spring back for contacts to be closed. there is a picture explaining this in the slide spec's.
You do not force anything on any operation and your jacks should be down to stable coach, and your shore line plugged in so motor has a good clean 12v's to operate. You need it so slide can get up ramp.
Make sure no one or dog-cat is near slide when operating the slide motor will crush anything that gets caught near wall and fascia face panel.
Remove ignition key after putting down jacks.

Just tear out the slide locks, they will cause you more trouble than they are worth.....

On our 1999 Dutchstar the locking arms are manually operated. Sort of like a dog gate between walls. Lift in middle to unlock. Hit button out the slide goes. Close slide push down on middle of locks to secure closed. Don't think I would remove them. They keep slide out securely closed.

ID:	210912 what is the slide room enable switch ? Should it have a constant 12v supply ?

I took it to the shop and they said it needed a new slide out controller, so I bought a new slide out controller and it still is not working.

The motor is good and working when powered by a 12v drill battery. I have a good ground, good fuse and good power.

What am I missing , seems like the circuit is pretty easy

Yes , that needs 12v. I would tie it into the red 12v.
