Question Urgent Help in Phoenix

Need a name of a reliable dealer/repair facility that can repair our galley slide. Two and a half months into our summer trip to, and now back from, Alaska, we had a blow out outside Fallon NV that damaged our rig including pulling a wire from the slide motor. We're hoping to have it repaired in Phoenix where we'll be for a week while attending a conference. Any recommendations? If none, any suggestions on how to manually move the galley slide in and out? Thanks!

Sorry. The first video I posted was not what I had in mind. Here is the thread with the correct video.
It looks easy in the video to manually slide the slide-out, but I'm afraid in real life with our heavy slide-outs it may take a tractor to move the slide-out.

I just Google'd "mobile RV repair phoenix" and got back some results. Cross reference them with the Better Business Bureau and you should be good to go.

You need to have a tech that knows what they are doing when it comes to this slide system. I strongly recommend you contact Lippert customer service for referal to competent shop in the Phoenix area..

Thank you for the replies. We took it to Camping World in Mesa this morning and they did a temporary fix that should last until we get home. It was the best they could do with our time restraints because replacement parts take a few weeks to come in. We'll take it to the dealer for repairs since they have to repair the main slide for a third time. Of course the folks at Dutchmen tell me it's out of warranty. It'll be an interesting battle since it's the same issue that we've had since purchasing the unit last year. At least we found a work around to bring the main slide out: husband on his back under slide with a wrench "helping" the slide in or out while wife uses remote. We've gotten it down to about 5 minutes. Not fun but it could be worse like the galley slide not working.
