Manual slide operation ?

Have 2010 Outback (325fre). Have tool for brining in slides if motor fails. Have looked extensively and cannot find where one would insert tool ? Not a current problem but like to be prepared.

Does anyone have and idea or know?

Appreciated,
Ray

What does the tool look like? Our TT has a crank that is like a rod with a 90bend on the end. There is a shaft that comes from the slide (under the TT) to the street side that you put the crank in and turn the shaft to close or open the slide.

I am sure each trailer is a bit different but mine is just to the right of the slide. to rear of trailer. when you are cranking it out your out of the way of the slide. Mine is right at the bottom of the trailer. hope that helps. I had to use mine one time when it quit working.

Many manual cranks are located opposite the slide, with a lead screw through to the gearbox. Do you see a hole about 1" diameter on the opposite side of the RV?

Tks for replies. Will check out when out of this cold, rainey weather. Not inviting to crawl under trailer.

Just like sailing in rough weather, head her into the wind. A broadside at that velocity will roll it over, minimum result.

If it is hydraulic, there is a place on the motor to attach an electric drill. This will turn the motor, and extend the slides.
