Where are manual slideout machanisms located?

If a slide motor fails or you lose all power for some reason, where are the manual slideout mechanisms at? I'm assuming the new fifth wheels have them, but I can't find them.

On my 2014 FW, on the opposite side from the slider, there is a port hole that the crank handle slides into.

I have a 2012 23.5 eagle ht it has one slide and am pretty sure the manual crank is located under the belly of the trailer. There is a 2' square of liner that is attached separately with screws, undo it and use a socket wrench to crank, apparently it's takes many many cranks to get one back in.

bcmorr, what TT do you have? The answer here may be, "it depends".
Like "Tee", I can access mine by removing the roughly 2' x 2' panel on the belly. To get the slide in or out I have to lay on my back under the hatch and use a ratchet. I've had to do it once and it took about 45min. Not really difficult but very slow going. Our previous TT was the X23B and its manual slide retract was underneath the sofa.

Different floor plans have different locations to operate the manual slides. If I am not mistaken, on the 33.5RETS, all the motors are exposed underneath the slide outs and I'm guessing can be operated manually from there. My previous unit with one slide had to be operated from the center of the unit underneath the flooring. There was no access panel and one had to be cut to operate this slide. After doing that about three times, Jayco replaced the slide out motor and Walla, no more problems!

Forgot to mention that the manual retract is on the side opposite the slide.

Not sure why they can't just have a crank hole on the side of the trailer someplace for use in an emergency like they have for the front jacks if they were to fail.
