move slide manually

I recently purchased a 98 trop i cal mdl. 6351, Is there a way to pull the slide in manually if the regular controls wont work? Not anticipating trouble just trying to get familiar with the coach since there is no factory to call for tech support.

On my 98 Tradewinds, there is a square rod underneath the slide that turns when the slide moves in and out. An open end wrench can be used to turn this rod to manually move the slide in and out. But first you have to release the clutch on the motor. Rook

When you get a chance to dance, or sit this one out......I hope you DANCE!

On the end of the motor you will find a lever, move it and you can actually push it in or use what Rook said. If you ever have to do this make sure to put the lever back in lock position. You don't want your slide coming out going down the road.

The doc's in the Slideout Docs folder in this link should help.



Here is a link to all the doc's that came with my 99 Tradewinds. Most should apply to your TropiCal
