Wink Accessing motor for floor slideout on entry step

First time on site. I have a 2001 National Caribbean diesel. The floor panel that slides out to fill the entry step for the passenger to stand on is not operating. I can hear the motor humming when the switch is activated. How is this motor accessed??? The sound appears to be from the centre of the unit but I cannot find any access panels. Any thoughts or clues would be appreciated. Thank in advance.

I do not own your M/H, but I have had the same problem. You could try activating your slide step switch and gently pull on the step to see if you can pull it out. If that does not work, my motor was bolted to the floor of the cavity where the step it at, when not out. On mine, the sliding floor had a "L" bracket on the bottom, where this rod is bolted to. What I had to do was get under my M/H and unbolt 4 bolts that held the motor in place. they were like 7/16" in size. this allowed me to pull the step out far enough to get a box wrench on the bolt to separate the rod from the sliding floor. once the floor is removed, this will give you access to the motor. Good Luck

Thanks Dave. I did try pulling on the slideout while holding down the switch. No joy there. There is no brackets at the bottom of the slideout. I am still hoping there is a Caribbean owner out there. They only made them for l year(2001) so I know they are rare.
