Default Slide out issues

We can not get the side to engage. Is there a way to manually slide it in. Or any suggestion on where to look to see where the issue is? The lights go on and change but no response from the motor?

TRY TAPPING MOTOR/S? Sometimes, motor brushes stick and disconnect, and tapping vibration lets spring push them back into contact? Or push-on connector brushes loose needs slight pinch? Some brands of motors you unplug, which releases brake, and you can then push slide in. Some, you may have a shear pin or cotter-pin to remove linkage connection to motor? Good Luck.

IF (and only IF) your slide is hydraulic (not just electric), be sure that your hydraulic fluid reservoir has plenty of fluid in it. The hydraulics will not work if there is not enough fluid in the reservoir.

GOOD LUCK with your troubleshooting!

Good luck !
