Manual slide retraction on 2018 Montana

We just purchased a 2018 Montana 3790RD. The limited owners manual says to manually retract the hydraulic jacks or the electric/hydraulic slides refer to information supplied with the fifth wheel. Of course there was no other paperwork on this issue. When asked, the dealer said there was no way to manually retract either on newer Keystone fifth wheels. Sent an email to Keystone but got no reply. Does anyone know if/how to manually retract the slides or jacks on 2018 Montanas?

This was question asked yesterday about basically the same thing http://www.montanaowners.com/forums/...ad.php?t=74133

Once again the dealer is clueless. You use a drill motor and a 1/4" hex drive in the end of the pump motor (there is a sticker covering the hole with directions on which way to go). There are also control blocks, usually on the driver's side of the front compartment, which control which function(s) you want (slides or jacks).

I believe Lippert has manuals on how todo all this and there may be some of them stored here in the Files section. Look at http://www.montanaowners.com/forums/...?do=file&id=12 Page #14 for manual override instructions.

Lippert has a free APP for smart phones. It's called myLCI. I've found it very handy. It has videos and instructions for things like retraction of slides.
