2015 keystone Laredo 312re Slide not extending all of the way out. Supposed to be a manual override, but where?

I had this problem several years ago.
Problem can occur at least three ways:
1. Most likely, something is in the way. A displaced trim molding, the rubber seal has moved, or ? With the slide only slightly extended, using a flashlight and mirror, examine every part of the seal/body junction inside and out that you can. A straightened coathanger can help remove a foreign object.
2. The slide might be binding. The motor would hang, draw excessive current, and shut down. Testing this would involve manual slide extension. Not familiar with Keystone, but typically, you run it out with a crank. The crank location is a round opening under slide. Depending on length of slide, there may be two. If two, they must be actuated together, or each one alternately, a little at a time. On some brands, the gear train between actuator motor and slide MUST be disengaged to allow manual extension/retraction, it depends on how the manual extension works. Hopefully you have a manual that can explain the procedure. The crank(s) to extend/retract are usually stored in the bay(s).
3. The motor has weakened. This is unlikely, if the problem is just the last inch or so.

Good luck!

No owners manual with my 2014 Freedom Elite - do you have to have plugged in to extend slide out?

If the battery is good or you are hooked to the tow vehicle the slide will deploy electrically. No need to be plugged in.

Adjust slide out on heartland prowler

The slides are designed to tip and drop when coming out so that when fully extended they will be flush with the floor. When coming back in the bottom will pull in first and cause the top to tilt out until the slide fully closes and the weight transfer back to balanced and the slide properly seals. When the slide is all the way out is it sealed all the way around? If it is then you do not need to adjust. There is alot of weight being balanced at two connecting points under the slide. If it does need to be adjusted you are better off taking it to someone who knows what they are doing.

How do I manually extend the slide on a 2010 sabre silhouette 250 5th wheel

That is a difficult thing to do it involves disconnecting the two motors that push the slide out and then pushing the slide out. On our rig there are some adjusting screws on the motor housing that have to be adjusted so that the motor does not contact the gears that drive the slide in or out. Even with the motors disconnected it is a very difficult thing to do. We were told that it would take more than the two us us to move the slide manually.

What causes the slideout not extend completely on one side

More information would be needed, i.e. yea, manufacturer, model and type of slide. But there could be many reasons, the slide mechanism may out of alignment, there may be something interfering with the slide so it will not extend. Or it could be simple such as a piece of carpet jamming on the inside!

We would need to know more about where you notice the issue!

Slide manual

On the opposite side of the coach from the slide there should be an access point that will allow you to insert a manual crank to retract or extend the slide. It is usually a small hole through the frame.
