Hopefully there shouldn't be a need while your camping..., but I would recommend that your RV dealer show you the actual slide motor location by removing the existing access panel. If there isn't a cut-out access panel already in place have the dealer install one, you don't want to deal with this task at a later date.
Also, confirm that your TT OEM slide manual states the directional rotation (clockwise/counter clockwise) for manual operation of the motor to open/close the slide...., knowing this will avoid any additional damage to the drive mechanism.
My slide has been working just fine for 10 years, but I did pull my access panel off a couple of years ago just to take a look inside, everything was solid.
