Slide Override

I have a 2014 Dutchmen Aerolite 282dbhs. The slide will not come in. I checked the fuses in the camper. They are good. I cannot find the slide override. Please help.

Hang in there, someone with an answer will show up soon. All I understand is there is a manual crank position somewhere in your RV.

The slide override on mine was behind the center molding... BUT they used several manufacturers for that unit and they say to refer to the particular manufacturer's instructions.

That raised section in the middle... by the way, they should have given you a SPECIAL tool that fits the connection. Do you know which slide you have? Hydraulic, mechanical?

I bought it used. So not sure about a tool. So are you talking about Thebes's molding along the ceiling above the dinette? I believe it's mechanical

yes, the slide manual operation is there if it is mechanical. It takes a special tool to operate it (almost like an allan wrench that can be attached to a drill). When you try to move the slide, do you hear a motor trying to run?

No. I don't hear anything. Almost like a fuse is out but I checked that and it's good.
