slide out failed

My bedroom slide out failed on my 34ss. I can see the override nut but it will not move. I can get my 3/8 impact on it but it doesn't go. How else can I get this to move? I can see the problem as the motor is not attached to the gear box anymore. I believe I need the slide out to get to the parts from underneath. HELP. at least it is in my driveway.

Assuming this is a rail through the frame slide, If the motor has come apart from the gears / track then you should be able to push the slide out manually by pushing evenly on both sides. It should be free moving at this point.

I got it in yesterday to come home from a week long trip but it will not push out now. I took my impact gun too it and it will move. Look like I might be taking some of the bed apart.

Did you loosen the brake on the end of the motor?

The motor broke off the gearbox, so no I didn't. Motor is just laying next to rail.

I just had a slide out motor assembly go bad on my 11 year old rig. It was a Dexter slide out but my dealer got a replacement from Lippert. If you have some info off of the motor /gearbox, you should be able to get a replacement.

If the motor fell off, it sounds like the gear box may be jammed.

I cut the floor open to get to the motor and gear box off. Now need to find out if something in jammed up, it still won't push out.

Lippert's website has a ton of slide manuals
Also I have had to talk to their tech support, they were very helpful.
