Default Help Needed with Old Trailer

Greetings, friends!
My wife and I will be replacing an old park model trailer in October. To do so, we need to retract the slide-outs for removal. The unit has been in its place for around 30 years, and there's no manual, so does anyone here know what type of mechanism this era (1994) slide-outs would use?

Thanks!

Is it being reused or can you just skid steer pieces of it into a dumpster instead? That is what I always envision us doing when I replace ours.

Someone has mentioned that I might be able to take it to Moultonborough's transfer station for recycling, but I'm not sure. Either way, I'd need to tow it, which means getting those slide-ins retracted.

Hey, I'd love to see what you have and how you solve it. I'll be in the same situation at some point although mine is only 20 years in place (I assume).

You know where I am, so swing by or PM me and I'll swing by. I'll be there as soon as Thursday.

Maybe obvious, but have you googled the manufacture's name and model # to see if there is a manual for it.

Also, I found a Mariah Boatowners page that had a forum with tons of information. Maybe there is a [manufacturer owners] page.

Good luck

Dave

Yeah, I have--it's a '94 and the company was sold and resold, etc. I think I have enough info on manually overriding it, but if I could find the original process, it'd simplify things.
