TT slide out stuck inside - best way to handle situation while on vacation?

Hello, my husband and I are on the first big vacation with our brand new Winnebago Micro Minnie TT. The one slide out we have has jammed on one side and will not extend. There is a gap on a lower corner where the slide out does not close all the way. We are barely able to reach the control box but disconnecting it to try to manually over ride did not work. We are not able to find or reach the screw to mechanically disconnect it. We bought it from General RV last month and the closest one is in Ill. and we are in MN wanting to head out west. We are from Mi. Day 3 of a 2 week vacation. waiting for General RV to open to ask about the warranty.

so my question is: do we go home, do we try to get it fix where we are at now, do we suck it up and continue on the vacation - very tight quarters with 2 adults and 2 dogs, do we find a city where there are more options RV repair?

Just wondering how others handled a similar situation. Usually, we fix things if we can but we can't AND my poor husband has a bad head cold and he never gets sick. lol but not loling

I would contact my dealer and the manufacturer both today. I would ask them to authorize a mobile tech in your area to come to you for repair.

I would contact Winnebago, they might have suggestions on how to get the slide going. If they can't they might know a place or mobile tech that will.

That is what I did. The slide is jammed at the bottom. Parts are needed. Hanging out in Bemidji, Mn for a couple of extra days.

It would be a shame to cancel your big trip since you've already begun.

I'd ask around for a mobile tech or call around to see if a RV repair can help you.... even if you have to pay it yourself.

If you run into rain while driving it might enter your RV if there's a space for it to do so. Otherwise, many RVers have traveled successfully with dogs and kids in a RV that doesn't have slides. You can do it!!
