Slideout Trouble 2009 Jayco Eagle 314BHDS TT

Large slideout won't move out. Motor makes clicking sound but won't move slide. Tried to locate an access panel for motor but unable to find it. Battery is new and also connected to shore power. Has anyone experienced this issue?
Tried getting info from Jayco but all they told me was take it to a dealer. They wouldn't even tell me the part number for the motor in case I need to replace it.

Can you try the manual crank and see if the slide will move?

Haven't been able to locate the manual crank or the access point for the motor. Looks like I may have to remove the covering panels under the frame. Jayco was no help with info. They just want me to take it to a dealer.

My Komfort has a small hole for an emergency crank on the opposite side of the slide. It looks like a long model T crank, ha, ha.

Thanks for the reply. I did look for a small access hole on the opposite side but all there is is a hole for cranking down the spare tire, which is mounted under the trailer.

Mine has a sealed underbelly. There is a cutout/screwed in panel about 6"x6". I remove the panel and the motor is visible.

Thanks for the info. I do see a 16" x 18" panel underneath. I will pull it off later today and see what I can find. It looks like the panel has been off before, so maybe previous owner had slideout issues in the past.

Thanks again!

did the wires to the battery get connected properly,,, check them.

if so when you try open the slide it will attempt to close.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, the wiring is all correct and have a new battery. The slideout was working properly prior to the breakdown. Perhaps could be a relay bad or the motor itself.

Located access panel under trailer. Cranked the manual screw about 2 turns and tried the motor again. It engaged the gear and slid it all the way out and back in again. May be a worn spot on the worm shaft that the motor gear can't engage properly.

Thanks to all who responded and gave me ideas to try!
