You could manually put power to the system by using the 6 pin jack. Here's a manual that spells out the wiring.
These are external spring loaded jacks so you could also retract them by loosening the hose going to each jack and letting it bleed off. You would have to add some fluid to the reservoir before using the system again.

Hope that helps. And it' sa good question and something we should all know before it becomes a crisis.
So.... Who has opinion on how to raise Big Foot jacks in event of power failure? one of the things I always fear, is it' stile to break camp, and the next occupant is waiting for your (now their) space and you can't raise the jacks, or retract the slide or the awning.

Unfortunately, most of us will wait until that moment to figure out how to do it. I have yet to crawl under my unit to find out where the access panels are for my slide out motors. I have an approximate idea, but had not tried the actual process yet. My unit sits on a gravel bed most of the time so not someplace I want to crawl around on. I would prefer a nice concrete service with a creepy crawler to scoot around on. Don't we all though!
