2012 sunset Trail 30RE slide motor

2012 sunset Trail 30RE
My rear motor for the slide won't budge at all...
Trying to get to the motor to see if there's a loose wire or something... Tried to jog it and reset it from the console--no dice.
It's still under extended warranty, but need to get the slide closed in order to get her to the shop...
Started to dismantle the six inch trim in hopes of getting to the motor...
Thinking I should try to see if I can use my insurance road side assistance to get it closed... Slide is hanging off dropout on side of driveway so it's hard to get leverage to push it in manually...
Any recommendations?

Is it a Schwintek slide? Have you tried to re-set it? There is a video online about how to do that. If you cannot find the video, I will look for it and post it.

We had issues with our Schwintek slide last month and it turned out they never sealed the slide properly when the trailer was built and water got in, destroying all kinds of stuff including the bed and the mechanism. We got it all fixed at the factory earlier this month. They practically re-built the entire slide.

There are two methods to over ride a malfunction. Electrical and mechanical. Do a Google search on troubleshooting schwintec slides. Both methods are explained.
