Default Front Slide - Manually retracting

The other day I was parked in a very strong wind. Interestingly the wind pushed the front slide in about 6 inches and the electronic read out indicated the retraction was halted. When the wind stopped I tried extending the slide, but could not. I then retracted it and then extended it and all was well. The reason I write this is because it has been said on this site that the front slide can be retracted WITHOUT having to disassemble the mechanical slide operating mechanism and this wind eposode gives me faith that it can be done. Has anyone on this list found out the way to release the front slide (and rear for that matter - although the wind did not move the rear slide) so that it can be pushed in by hand?

Always learning...

Thanks,

Dennis
