2013 Keystone Springdale Manual Slide

How do you manually retract the slide on a 2013 Keystone Springdale 212RBLSWE trailer?
Thanks,
John

That's the first place I looked but there are no specific instructions for this particular model, only refer to the manufacturer for info.
I was wondering if anyone had actually retracted this model manually and how they went about it.
Thanks,
John

We have an older Keystone but probably the same slide mechanism. I had to do this once. use a wrench, like a big cresent wrench, not for size but leverage, on the square tube that connects the gears on both sides of the slide. it will take awhile.

No but it will be obvious just looking at it. the square tubing is probably 3/4 or 1 inch maybe

If you crawl under the trailer it'll be obvious as to what needs turning. It takes about 3 days to crank it in or out! Just kidding of course, but I've tried it. You can do it with a 12" cresent wrench, a bigger wrench makes it a lot easier, but a bigger wrench is heavy and awkward. I tried mine some time ago and it seems to me there is an area on the end of the shaft you can (if your handy) build a socket to fit on a 1/2 drive that will fit the square shaft. Now that I have a really good 1/2" cordless impact gun I may look into making up such a tool for when mine takes a dump.

If yours is like mine a 1/2' ratchet fits perfect inside the square tube. it turns pretty easy, but it'll take a lot of turns to close it.
