Slide Out Manual Overide location??

So the manual hydraulic portion of the motor doesn't work (either), so i am attempting to locate the bolt to manually draw the slide-out in the out position.

*I found one post where a Dutchmen owner located the bolt however, he said the bolt was literally covered by the camper with no access hole.

I have a 1996 Dutchmen 310 Classic 32'

Please help if you know what i can try, like i said the motor AND the manual hydraulic portion (on the motor) will not work.

I was told by an RV store that many Dutchmena simply dont have a manual crank to EXTEND the slide out?? Mine is stuck in the CLOSED/IN position-

anyone out there have any idea if there is some type of lock mechanism to prevent one from manually forcing the slide open??

Cant find any answers in manual or otherwisw online, looking for a Dutchmen poster to save me for the love of God!!

Snap some pictures of the slide mech. It may spark some ideas.

To remove the motor the set screw has to be removed if the slide can't be opened. However, the first post in the thread alluded to a juice mechanism did it not?

A little more info please. When you say the motor and manual option don't work, what do you mean? Can you hear the motor trying to operate? When you try the manual over ride can you turn the motor? Do you have any fluid leaks under the trailer? Get back to us and we'll try and put our heads together.

So....I never did locate ANY maual override however, I climbed under the motor assembly and the wire to the slide out switch was cut! Fixed the wire and the motor fired right up!!! Could not believe it. Thanks for the assistance, im still worried if motor goes out about no way to crank it back out but I will take what I got for now!
