Manual Overide for Slideout

I just purchased a 2015 Whitehawk and was wondering where the manual override is for the slideout, looked all over and did not see anything, this is the one thing in my walk through they did not mention. In my manual they show two different slideouts, not sure which one this is.

Simple identifying marker for you is the "s" aluminum tracks on the upper and lower sides of a schwintek slide. If you have one of these slides there is a controller with a manual override. It's a black box with a white sticker on it and LED lights in a recessed window. There is a code chart on the sticker that tells you what is wrong by the flashing lights. If you are in a bind and the slide won't retract you push the button 6 times and hold on the 7th. Then you can retract the slide with the wall switch. This overrides the counting of the rotation of the motors upon closing.

If you have a large living area slide those are most likely going to be underneath the unit and a socket is the only way you can retract them manually. It will under most cases require you dropping the underbelly material in that location where the motors are located.

Thank you, I don't think it is the Shwintek slide, you are probably right that it is hidden under the Enclosed Underbelly, thanks again for the reply..

Hopefully in these cases Jayco still has the slide motor access underbelly panel pre-cut (my 2005 was).

Here is a pic of my Jayco pre-cut underbelly panel removed exposing my slide motor...., you can see the extended hex shaft where a socket can be attached to move the slide manually (turn all power to slide OFF first).

My 2012 has a fully enclosed underbelly and has the pre-cut access panels. About 8 screws each. Take a look underneath, you'll probably find them.

There is a panel under mine, but it does not line up right IMHO for the slide motor. I think it's luck of draw on these lately and not all models have an access panel. Hopefully I am wrong as I have yet to confirm if that is my access since it is sealed up nicely. If and when something does occur you can bet that I will install an access panel if that is not it.

I only have one of the rail type slides on my large LR slide. All the others are Scwintek which has me concerned. My goal is to understand these systems and everything that can or will go wrong and how to replace parts. The motors are easy to get to to under most cases except when open fully then you need to go at them from the outside which is much harder. When my one side moter went I had to push the dead side in while DW retracted the working motor. The manual feature failed due to a wire pulling out the motor entirely. On the plus side the "brains" gave me the right code to diagnois the problem which said a wire was disconnected as it was.

Does anyone know if that can be done in place of crawling underneath to close the slide in case of failure without cause more damage?

I think it is case specific. i.e. if you gear box is busted there is no way manually it's going to come in so you would have ot push it. If the motor only gives and the gear box is good then you could further break parts IMHO.

I was told by the dealer, unhook the motor, and push.
