Need some advice. Have a 2014 Siesta 24SR
AAA battery rolled under the side slide out. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

A AAA battery shouldn't cause an issue because it should be smaller than the slide rollers. You can try to park with the slide side slightly elevated and see if the battery can be fished out using a wire clothes hanger.

Magnet
Tape
Stick.

If that doesn't do it:
An endoscope for Android phones is about $12 on amazon.
Then:

We found a hinge, a cabinet door strut, a kitchen drawer latch, about a dozen screws and a pound of sawdust under the slide of our 29M. I don't think a AAA battery will do any damage. A used a wooden yardstick to clean everything out.

Thank you all. Used an endoscope and a yard stick to get it out.
Thanks
