There are several different slide systems on the market today. If your system has the rack and pinion gear on the bottom of the slide you will see one on each end. Between the gear blocks you will see a connecting rod which has a bolt through the square tube and through the shaft of the gear block. You will need to count the teeth (I use a white grease pencil and mark every 5th tooth to make it easy) so that you can see how far off the gear blocks are from one another. Disconnect the shaft opposite from the end you want to adjust and use a large crescent (adjustable) wrench turn the shaft to move the gear block (and the slide) to the proper location. Once you have the slide where you want it reattach the cross shaft. Now everything is lined back up and timed correctly but chances are that it will not stay until you determine what caused it to be out of adjustment. Are any teeth missing on the pinion gear or the rack? Has the side wall or floor rotted causing an issue with the structural integrity of the slide, are the slide seals sticking causing the slide to hang up (should be lubricated at a minimum of every six months with 100% silicone spray)? Until you determine the cause of the actual failure you will be wasting time making adjustments. Good luck.

Can you turn on the hot water pilot light if water is frozen

No it shouldn't hurt anything, the damage may already be done. I would first turn off the water supply to the heater, and attach a hose to the drain and open it. Lighting the pilot will help the unit thaw. Once you feel it has completely thawed and drained, close the boiler drain and open the supply slowly to check for leakage before full use.
Good Luck

How to adjust 2010 montana high country slideout

Is this the system with the cables on the side? If so, they should, via a system of pulleys, be routed to the top of the slide on the inside of the coach. There you will see a few adjustment points. Before you do that, have you lubed the slide seals? If not, use 100% silicone spray and lube the seals good. The seals can get tacky and grab the slide making it jump when in motion. You will also want to mark the adjustment bolt before making any adjustments just incase you need to go back to the original setting.

The slideout is not working. No noise everything else is working cannot locate fuse for slideout?

There will be an inline circuit breaker that controls the power for the slide. Some are automatic reset and others have a small black button on the side that will need to be pushed in to reset. These are usually located in an outside storage compartment.
