One of the slides on our 32BHDS was WAY out of adjustment when we bought it. We had to take it back to the dealer.

Are you using the remote? My remote will do that. I always use the switch in the control panel.

Which slide is it?
The big slide on our Pinnacle with the entertainment center and kitchen in it is the heaviest slide.
When operating ours we have to make sure the 5er is level side to side and front to rear or it will not work correctly and stall out easily.
Also I have learned to make sure we are on shore power and level before operating the large slides in or out and we have not had any issues since.
Another tip for the Schwintek Slides is to make sure you run it all the way out and all the way in with out stopping. Also hold the button about 3 seconds after they are fully open or fully closed, this will allow the slide motors to re-sync. This will also prevent problems with the Schwintek Slides.

My manual cranks are on the opposite side of the 5er, underneath the belly under a screwed down hatch in the belly.

If it is the Schwintek Slide (the ones with the silver tracks mounted to the side of the slide) the manual override is done with the slide controllers that are usually mounted in the front pass-thru storage compartment.
If it is a standard slide then there is a access hole in the side where the crank handle fits.

The Bedroom Slide is a Schwintek, not sure about the other slides on that model / floorplan.
The opposite side slide in the main living area is usually a standard slide that is operated manually be a hand crank.
It does not have a controller box.
