Manual Slide out help

Just sign up new to this . I have a 2003 class C Big Foot motorhome 30MH29SL. I'm trying to work the Manuel crank on the slide out just not sure how to do it. I read we're it said you need to disconnect the power to the slide motor before you can try to crank it. Can I just pull the fuse because I can't find we're to disconnect it. Any other help. Thanks

Pulling the fuse should be equivalent to disconnecting the motor.

I would say it is only a precaution against the motor being energised (perhaps if the switch had stuck on and the motor had tripped out on overload and then reenergised when the auto-reset breaker reset) while you are working the manual crank handle and breaking fingers or wrist.

Should be a slide brake on the motor, you have to release it first.

Have you looked at the end of the drive motor?

Welcome to irv2.
You may not have a brake.
FOR A example look at this link as to how the motor and drive shaft may look. You may have some brass bushings that may need to be released to disconnect motor from shaft and the slide can easily be pushed in by a few people.
Some pictures of your system would help.

Instructions for the slide on a bigfoot camper - obviously not the same vehicle as yours - say to locate the manual override socket on the outside of the camper, insert the handle and wind the slide in or out

Still searching. All good answers. The only thing I can figure out is there's a square coupling that connects the motor shaft with the slide gear shaft and it has a pin in the middle of it to disconnect it. The pin I pulled out witch came out easy but didn't wont to slide the coupling back to the motor just yet until I investigate a little more.

OK I found out how to do it. It was on the motor shaft. There's a slip collar with a pin that connects the motor shaft and the slide shaft I tried to get it to work yesterday but it wouldn't move I tried it again today I put a little heat on it and it came loose, side it over to disconnect it. you can actually push the slide in not that hard. I think it's only about 16 ft long PTL. Thanks all. I'm going to change the tranmission oil and filter at the end of the month so keep a eye open for more help lol bye all.
P.S. NASCAR in rain delay :-( Boogity Boogity Boogity let's go racing Boys
