Manually Engaging Slideouts

Hello All....

We are kind of stuck...literally. Long Story short...slideout motor got fried. How can we manually extend slideouts? We have a 36FL...

Thanks!

you should be able to go to Lci1.com and click on the Customer Service for videos and instructions. I hope this helps. If you google "how to manually override Lippert hydraulic slides" you should find a you-tube video that shows you how to do it.

Thanks....I did find one but of course it doesn't look like ours....and I am mechanically challenged....I was hoping someone with a Redwood 36fl has done it before....it is the hydraulic slides in the rear...

If it's a Lippert system than it shouldn't matter if it looks exactly the same or not but the concept is the same. I have the 31sl and have never had to manually override but I know I downloaded the directions from Lci!.com on how to do it just in case. Lci1 has all sorts of how to videos and manuals on "How To" I tried to figure out how to copy and paste the video site but I'm computer challenged, sorry.

What was the outcome. How did you make out with the slides?

Well....we are still stuck....Have to get a new hydraulic motor, etc...waiting to hear tomorrow how it is going to get fixed and how soon. We have the rear slides open enough to get through into the bedroom....but....we cant bring slides in or the jacks up....so we are stuck. In talking with several so called experts....we can't manually extend or retract the slides and jacks unless we disconnect/drain the hydraulics....not an emergency yet.....Ill keep you posted.

Oh and just an FYI....it was a Camping World screw up......

I don't understand why the "so called experts" are saying it can't be done. The instructions on the LCI website provide the information. There is a hex socket (I believe it is 1/4 or 5/16 inch) on the top of the hydraulic pump motor. You can use a matching size allen wrench to turn the motor manually (slow process) or the appropriate size adapter with a battery operated drill (faster process) to operate the pump.

Which experts are you talking to? Lippert, Redwood or Camping world? Redwood and Lippert should know how to do this. Caution!!!!!..........don't let someone who thinks he knows tell you what has to be done to do it manually. According to Lci1 directions, you do not have to drain fluid.

My slides are good, but my legs are stuck too. Cannot move the trailer. It is so high that it is lifting up my truck fifth wheel hitch. Keeps going up and never down. On my computer it never reads JACKS UP... I was wondering what you did to fix your jacks? I am not getting help from anyone--would love some advice or anything. I even tried changing solenoids but to no avail. HELP
