However, since the slider is in and no longer will come out, we can not get to the screw that will release the motor.
Question is "does anyone know how to manually move the slide out"?
According to the Lippert InWall Slideout owners manual:
In the event that the InWall slide unit fails to operate and manual operation is necessary, proceed as follows:
1. Locate the control panel
2. Unplug both motors.
3. The room may now be pushed in or out as desired. Larger rooms may take several people to push. Try to keep both sides of the room even. When the room is completely in, plug both motors back in to the controller,this applies a brake to the motors and keeps the room in the locked position. WARNING: DO NOT MOVE RV UNLESS MOTORS ARE PLUGGED IN!!
Hope this helps.
There are also error codes that will be set in the controller which will indicate which motor and where the problem exists. Once an error code is set the control board needs to be re-set. Energizing the extend/retract switch resets the board, then simply press the extend/retract switch again to operate.
One other thing. If no one has told you, whenever extending or retracting always keep the switch depressed for 3-5 seconds after the motors stop. This keeps everything set properly.
