jjroxus Posted August 17, 2022 Share Posted August 17, 2022 This morning after a week at a campground here in Asheville, NC, when I started bringing in my living room slide it stopped in the middle of the operation. When pushing the switch either in or out, I could hear the solenoid clicking. I checked the connections on the solenoid, cleaned them and retightened. Still no movement. If I jump the large 12 volt input from the battery to the motor connection on the solenoid the motor runs. I did changed out the solenoid about six months ago. I checked the slide room visually on the outside of the coach and noticed the back of the room’s slide seal was binding up in an area two feet near the top. The front and back had not moved evenly. I got out my tools and was able to reposition the seal. When I tried the switch again, the slide moved unevenly in about 6 inches and stopped again. The switch just clicks the solenoid again when being pushed. Now the front top was close to being closed but the bottom was a couple inches farther open. On the other end of the room-the back end of the slide did not move the same amount and was not even with the front. By this time the campground manager was at my coach telling me I need to leave and make room for the next camper. I tried turning T - handles on the hydraulic pump but they would not turn. So myself and couple of neighbors tried pushing the slide in with my wife running the switch. We managed to get the room to almost close at the top but still open a couple of inches at the bottom. We left the campground and drove three hours to our next stop in the Hiawassee, GA area with the slide ajar. I pretty sure the problem is not related to the switches/sensors on the basement doors under the slide as I tested them at my new camp ground. I also was under the coach checking the solenoid connections again. I tapped on the hydraulic reservoir and couldn’t tell if it had fluid in it. Could it be I need to add hydraulic fluid ? The slide out had been working fine until today? At this point I am looking for advice on how the hydraulic system works, troubleshooting ideas, etc. Anyone know of a company around hear that has expertise in this type of repair?
