III. OVERRIDING YOUR SLIDE-OUT SYSTEMpage 5

Your Power Gear slide-out system is equipped with a manual override that allows you toextend or retract a room in the event of a loss of power.If your system will not move when the switch is pressed make sure that: the system is turnedon, the battery is connected and has a full charge. After all of these are completed, thenfollow these simple steps to move the room manually.A. MAIN ROOM SLIDESTEP 1 - Make sure that the ON/OFF switch/key for the system is turned off.STEP 2 - Locate the slide-out motor. It will be either ahead of the front rail or behind back rail.STEP 3 - Locate the two pin connector on the slideout motor leads and disconnect.STEP 4 - Rotate the lever on the backside of the motor counter-clockwise about 1/8 turn(looking from the rear of the motor). This will release the break that holds the roomin place.STEP 5 - The room is now free to move. Using a 3/4" wrench or ratchet, crank the room eitherin or out completely (depending on your need) using the manual override.STEP 6 - When the room is fully in (or out) have one person put pressure on thewrench/ratchet to ensure a tight seal while the another person returns the brakelever to it's normal downward locked travel position. This will ensure that the room islocked into a sealed position.STEP 7 - Take the unit to an authorized dealer for service.B. BEDROOM/WARDROBE SLIDE-OUTSTEP 1 - Make sure that the ON/OFF switch/key for the system is turned off.STEP 2 - Access the slideout mechanism.To access the bedroom slide out, lift up the mattress and base board.To access the wardrobe slide out, open the outside luggage compartment below thewardrobe.STEP 3 - Locate the two pin connector on the slideout motor leads and disconnect.STEP 4 - The bedroom slide-out motor has a lever on the backside. Rotate the lever counterclockwise about 1/8 turn (looking from the rear of the motor). This will release thebrake that locks the room in place.STEP 5 - Use an appropriate wrench (3/4" wrench/ratchet, or adjustable wrench) on theoverride to move the room in (or out). The override is located on the opposite sideof the slide-out rail from the motor.STEP 6 - Once the room is in (or out), apply pressure to the wrench so that the room is sealedand return the brake lever to it's normal downward position (to lock the room inplace).STEP 7 - Take the unit to an authorized dealer for service.page 6
