Vegas/Axis 25.2 Slide

I haven't had a problem with the rear slide.
I wonder if anyone has a procedure regarding what to do if the slide fails to extend or retract (for future reference)? Willing to share?
Thanks!

Two videos I found before our first trip with the Hurricane (our first experience with slides...) Haven't had to use either yet... almost had to on the overhead bunk (same mechanism).

Override the rotation counter on controller if it gets 'confused':


Full manual operation (disengage one or both motors and push!)

OOPS. File too large to attach. Send me email to bevedfelker@live.com and I'll forward the Operating Manual to you.

We had problems with both of the slides on our previous coach, a 33' Class A. Each time, it was a broken shear pin, which meant you couldn't crank the slide back in. They were too big to push.
It seems logical that since the bedroom slide on the 25.2 is much smaller and lighter, there should be much less strain on the mechanism. Lippert, the company behind Schwintek, has been making slide systems for many brands for many years.
One key reminder: don't reverse the slide without running it until it stops.
