Default Manual override for slide?

Hey guys. I just recently bought a Fun Finder F265RBSS and was curious if anyone knows if there is a manual override to retract the slide out on this model? On my previous camper there was a manual crank to retract the slide in the event 12v power was lost. I have searched but not found this on my Fun Finder. Also, I have the same question for the electric awning. Thanks all for your help, I appreciate it!

I can't really answer your question as I've never had the opportunity to look at that model. Depending on the year and model, your unit may have one of the Schwintek powered slides. IIRC, they don't have the manual system you may be most familiar with. I think to retract or extend them manually, you have to physically disconnect the drive system (it isn't difficult) and at that point the slide becomes "freewheeling" and you just push it closed or open. Do a search for the Schintek slide system or go here:

Schwintek by Lippert

You should be able to find your version of Schwinteck (along with manuals) on the Lippert site, if that is what your unit has. Again, if IIRC, most of the newer Cruiser RV products have gone to the Schwintek slide systems.

Hope that gets you pointed in the right direction...

if you send me your email I have a pdf manual for the slide, I am assuming they use the same for all the trailers

Default Slide Manual Override

Here's a youtube video showing the manual override process. I understand that the control panel in a 189FDS is under the bed, by the water tank, etc.
