Sure Dan, here's my comment:

Goto the Lippert website and find the PDF manual for the slide control system you have.
Download the PDF to a USB drive.
Open the PDF and find the manual procedure. It may be a couple of pages long.
Print the applicable pages (might as well print the troubleshooting pages as well), and keep them in a binder in your RV.
Find the components and connectors referenced by the procedure. Make notes on your printed pages.

All of this is much easier to do at home BEFORE you are on the road and find yourself with a slide problem.

X2! When my slide failed to come in one day I spent more than a hour wringing my hands and looking online for instructions on manual retract. At least it wasnít dark. Or raining. Or when I needed to be somewhere else. The actual process was an easy one person operation and I was never again fearful or anxious about my slides. Try it at home! Alas, my new coach (SOB) uses a different system and Iíve not yet followed my own advice to practice.

If it happens again listen to see if the front or rear motor is stopping first, then the other stopping a second or two later. If so the problem is that one of the sides is sticking, or the motors need to be resynched.
In answer to manually pushing in a slide, it was not easy on my rig. I had to use a ladder to disconnect both motors from their posts. Then me and three big dudes pushed it in by hand. I blocked it in place to take to the repair shop.

Slides that Don't

Cheap stuff first. Spray the slide pads on the bottom with Silicone spray or the stuff they sell special for slided. Can't hurt. I spray mine about twice a year and have not had any problems on a 2004 rig.
