Broken Manual Retract Screw

I have a 2003 winnebago adventurer 38g on w22 chassis. I had an issue with the living room slide which required me to try and manually retract. I followed the directions but the aft manual retract screw/rod snapped about an inch in. I have contacted HWH numerous times asking for help, as my slide is extended and I cannot move my motorhome. I have supplied all the relevant info but all I got back was a set of drawings for something else and havent heard anything else. If someone can tell me how to remove the threaded rod and perhaps where I can buy a replacement that would be great as unfortunately I have gotten no where with HWH. My options at this point is perhaps get it welded, or simply delete the slide completely, yes I'm seriously considering this due to lack of support from HWH. I have pictures, model numbers serial numbers etc etc to HWH with no reply back. Anyways the model number of the slide mechanism is AP27505. The rod is roughly 39 inches. I just cant figure out how to remove the rod.
Pictures are attached. Any help is much appreciated.

It snapped at the far end in the picture? Use your camera or a mirror to look for a snap ring, e ring on the far side of the big washer on the rod which can be seen in your picture.

HWH Manual retract screw

HWH manual retract screw as they call it is a threaded rod approx. 40 inches long. It snapped about 1 inch in. Now I have sent all the info and pictures to HWH incliding model and serial number of slide mechanism but have not had any luck getting a response back. I even sent them their drawings from their website, still no go. I reached out for advice how to remove the rod again silence. So I am stuck with slide extended and unable to move. If I cant find a way to fix this then my only option is to delete the slide I guess and figure a way to close in the opening. Any help would be much appreciated. Pictures attached

Twist the threaded rod counter clockwise and it will unscrew from the plastic bushing inside the square housing. As the rod begins to unscrew line it up with the hole the hex head came out of.

The rod will unscrew completely. Then have it welded back together. Then just screw it back in right through the same hole it came out of.
