Slide out manually

I have a 2018 Thor Freedom Elite with a side slide out. I am trying to find out how to manually close it. I didn' t get a crank or any instruction on how to close it if it gets stuck.

Go to thormotorcoach.com.
Owners tab, create a account with your VIN number.
There you should find both the owners manual and repair manual for your slide.

Get as many people from the campground as you can find and push. First unplug the torque motors as they act as a brake. Then when it in. Plug them back in and the slide is locked in place. If you have a full side slide like mine... you’re gonna be suck’n!! 🤣

My bedroom slide was pushed in with help.. 4-5 people...
My living room slide... fahgetaboutit... lol... We ran out of people.
Fortunately was able to bypass the issue at the time electrically.

Didn’t try physically disengaging motors... just unplugged them as Thor suggested at the time.
