Your crank may be underneath in the compartment where winch is. Frankly we have had to do this a couple of times, on our 98 and our 04. It is much easier to release the hydraulic value and push the slide in by hand and then tighten the value back up, the coach should be level to make it easy so you are not pushing up hill. There should be a diagram of the valves and which one is for the room slides. They even tried this at the factory instead of trying to crank!

Thank you for the reply. We can not put the jacks down at all. Looks like the motor is gone on the HWH. We are un level front to back going down hill. We need to find lots of strong men to get the living slide in I bet. Hoping Monday we can get HWH repair out here. Got a call from Johnie, the Moderator on the Forum, gave us a name there so hoping they will be able to come on Monday. Will keep you posted.

You may be right, it took 4 or us to push our front room slide in when it was not level side to side and we were pushing up hill. In the past when we were in east Texas we were sent to Pro Tech in Seguin TX for HWH repair. One thing if you talk to HWH they have two levels of repair places, we usually ask for a Master level repair which is the highest level other then going to Iowa. HWH is very very good to work with. Good luck!

I highly recommend Pro Tech! We have had a number of repairs done there including WRV warranty items. They have electric hookups in back. Good luck.

After you push the slides in, what keeps them in.

IF NOTHING ELSE LIKE CLOSEING THE VALVES YOU OPEN TO BRING IN SLIDE BY PULLING OR PUSHING. PUT THE WINCH CABLE ON AND TIGHTING CABLE.

Dr Dave is right. Just close valve after you get the slide in and it will stay in.

After trading photos with WRV service found out there is not a crank provide with the flat floor slides. If the replacement motor does not fix the problem we will have to find some jacks and raise the living room slide up 2" or so then push the D_____ think in.

Sorry, should have remembered that, 38 foot front room is flat. This is also something for those with the 40 foot Quad slide. They have the same issue with front room slide passenger side!

Sorry. Hope the new motor works.
