Shear Pin Problem on 2012 Eagle

I believe I have a broke shear pin. Is there anyone that can help with how I access the area in the slide so that I can replace it. Any pictures or explanations are appreciated

I also have a 2012 Eagle and have replaced shear pins three times so far. It is an easy fix. You will need an 1 1/2" x 5/16" hardened bolt with a lock nut. Under your slide there is an access panel in the under belly material. You will need a roberts (square) bit for your drill driver and simply remove the panel. It is a simple matter then to see which bolt is broke and replace it. You may need to have someone inside to tap the slide control to line up the hole. It is easiest to do with the slide fully retracted.

Any idea where in the underbelly of the slide the access panel may be? Left, right or center. I really appreciate your response and help. I M trying to help my husband and neither of us are mechanical and he does not do technology which is why I am doing the posting ��

You know, I don't even have a slide, but generous, helpful posts like this is the reason visit this forum every day. Disclaimer - I have no affiliation with this forum, I'm just a happy user.

Make sure your slide is in. If it won't go in by itself because the shear pin is broken you need to have one person outside pushing on the side of the slide that won't go in while the other operates the slide from inside. When is is in, go underneath the camper right where the slide is and lay on your back and look up. The under belly material is black plastic type stuff. You will see what looks like a patch on this material with screws around the perimeter of it. That will be the access panel. Once that is removed, you will see the slide motor with a shaft coming out of each end. The shaft is round with a piece of square metal tubing fit over it with a hole in it. The shear pin, or bolt, fits through a hole in the square tubing and also through the motor shaft. Make sure that both sides of the slide are full in and tight against the side of the camper so the slide will be aligned correctly when you replace the bolt.

IF I'm not mistaken, lippert university has some videos on changing out the shear pin on their website. You tube also has several. I was just on their websites yesterday checking out this scenario if it should ever happen to us. Good info.
