where is manual crank slide out access on Winnie Drop 1790

Hi folks, I am starting to have some issues with the power switch on the slide out on my 2018 Winnie Drop 1790. I know there is a manual override but I don't remember where it is. If someone has a picture they can send, that would be awesome. The manuals have not been of any help nor has You Tube.

I have a MM 2106DS, I was told by the RV Salesman that my unit had a manual overide that would retract the slide out should it fail. I searched a few of the Winnebaqo web sites for information and find out after contacting Winnebago directly that my unit does not have a crankable overide for the slideout. The 2106DS from previous years did, but for my 2018 trailer I have to undo the two slide motors from the outside, then I have to go inside the trailer and pull back the rubber seal which is at the top of the slide out and which covers the two motors, There is one motor on each side of the slideout, I then have to pull the motors up do that they no longer engage the gears. Then I can manually push the slide out back into the trailer. Note that my 2106DS MM has the smaller slideout, I am advised that the larger slideout do have a crank mechanism. So you really should contact Winnebago directly and ask which slideout mechanism you have.
Search YouTube there are videos for the various slideout, note there are a number of different slideouts so finding yours may mean contacting Winnebago directly, you just need your serial number and VIN number and they can look up the specifics for your trailer. As I said components have changed over the various model years.

Thank you, Don. I'll contact the dealer. I looked at all the You Tube slide out videos and saw the easy ones as well as the hard one that you described. I wouldn't want to have to do that.

First off, make sure the battery has a good charge. I believe the slide works directly off battery even when connected to shore power.

As for the manual option, I believe the procedure TrailerDon posted is what we have to go through. Let us know what you hear from the dealer.
