You should be able to manually open the slide. I did read a write up where someone had to use a rachet in order to move the slide.
When we bought our 32BHDS I asked about a manual slide override method because I did not see one like other Jaycos had. I was told there was not one available with the 32BHDS.
If your underbelly is enclosed you will need to drop the the underbelly material, locate the slide motor, unbolt/move the motor out of the way , and then attatche a socket to the slide part that is driven by the motor.
It may take several turns with the rachet before you notice the slide move. I suggest having someone stand by the slide so they can let you know if you are turning the correct way. Once you know the direction to turn you may want to get a power drill with socket adapter to spped up the process.
At one time I read about defective slide motors installed in some Jaycos, but when I checked the build dates my unit was not included.
