I have a trailer with 3 slide outs. Living room and 2 slide outs in the back for the kids room. The living room and one bedroom slide works fine. The other bedroom slide will not open. When I press the open switch I hear alot of clicking but it will not move. Is there a way to push the slide out manually? They are electric slides. Help please.

Usually there is a manual crank under the trailer. But climb under and see if you can tell what the problem is before you manually open it. Also look around the slide on the inside to see if anything got wedged in the slide path.

Looking at your floor plan, I would first check to make sure those cabinet doors on the back wall are closed. If one of them came open in travel it could be keeping the slide from opening.

I agree with the others. The clicking is the clutch ratcheting because the slide won't move. Very likely something like a cabinet door or something has jammed it.

On the other hand the clicking could be an indication of low 12 volt voltage.
Being a 2013 trailer, i suspect that your battery is toast unless you have recently replaced it?

The other slides work. This indicates an issue related to the one that doesn't.

Thanks everyone for chiming in. Voltage is at the proper 12V at all motors. I'm thinking it mat be stuck. I just have to find how it is stuck. I might try the manual overide to see if it comes out.

Mine has solenoids on the front A frame between the battery and the body of the trailer. That happened to me once and I had a loose connection at the solenoid. Tightened the connection and it’s worked fine since.
