I have a 2006 Sunnybrook 31 BWKS . Not much material came with its purchase. If I ever need to manualy retact the slides I am wondering if anyone knows where I would get access to them. Thanks

We had a 1997 Sunnybrook (mechanical screw system), on the passenger side was a hole and you could insert a crank and wind them in and out.

Better yet, cordless drill with a socket. :-)

On my trailer, the slide motor is on the bottom rear side of the slide out and can be operated either with the small crank that came with it or a electric drill/socket. It is attached to a long round bar that operates the opposite side gear along with the gear on the rear side.
You have to slide yourself under the trailer to access it.

Although our trailers are different types, I think Sunnybrook was fairly consistent in the use and placement of most things between models and years.

Better was just pushing the button on the wall.

Never had to use the manual method, so not really worth making a version that could be attached to the drill.

I read somewhere that they suggest unhooking the battery if you have to manually move the slides. I believe it was about back feeding the circuit. I'm sure someone knows more than me but it might be worth checking out.

On a hydraulic system there is a manual override mechanism you attach a drill/driver to and run it in. Same for the stabilizers as well. Got big problems if you are there however.

On our 2003 Sunnybrook fiver the manual was underneath on the motor or by it. While in New Mexico our slide motor burnt up and I had to manually crank it in and out for the rest of our trip. It was repaired under warranty when we got back home. It would be much easier with a drill though.
