1994 Travel Supreme 5TH Wheel Manual Slide
Hello, I own a 1994 Travel Supreme 5th Wheel, model 36 RK SS. Wonderful trailer that has not been hitched up / moved since 1996. Itís been sitting at an RV Space, lived in almost all itís life.
My first task is to make sure the two slides retract back in to the trailer. Attached are photos of my large and small slide out.
When underneath the RV today I couldnít find anywhere to manually activate the slide outs. I am very hesitant to use the 12 V slide controller until I work out the bugs via manual mode. Here are my questions, in case anyone can help:
1. What is the location to manually retract the slide out? I assume near the slide out motor, but not sure if thatís accessible INSIDE the RV or through the BOTTOM of the RV (under the plastic protective cover). I have manual but does not say anything about this.
2. Given The RV has sat for 25 years without the slides being used, what do you recommend doing prior to retracting? I was thinking brushing / gently sanding off visible corrosion and using silicone spray on the railsÖ. Appreciate other thoughts or concerns with this approach.
3. Am I being too nervous with avoiding the 12 volt
Slide out switches until I manually retract / extend the slides? Or should I clean, oil, and give it a go?
Thank you in advance for your help!
