2006 monaco Windsor hydraulic generator door does not open

Do you the make/manufacturer of the generator slide?

My slide is a power gear system.  The slide controller is in the front drivers side electrical compartment, there is a 5 amp fuse that could have blown.  Just something to check.

My '05 Scepter had the same issue.  Turns out the switch on the bottom of the emergency/park brake push/pull switch was defective.  Mine was erratic, sometimes it would work, sometimes not.  Put the brakes on/off once or twice and maybe it would work.  It is bad when it won't open, but worse when it won't close.

When mine acted up tightening the nuts where the elect cables attached to the solenoids at the pump corrected my problem.

Ray,

Do you know what make model of slide that you have?

Couple of assumptions.  
 

Start with the simplest.  Use a test light or a VOM.  The Solenoid that has the large cables.  If it only has two large cables, then the

Jim J has written some good posts on this.

Here is the link to the 2006 Windsor wiring diagram.
https://www.monacoers.org/files/file/388-2006-windsor-camelot-sceptor/

look at the following prints. Diagram, Generator Slide and Diagram, Dash Switches.  They are about halfway in as you scroll.

I assume that your MH is air leveling….no JACKS.  I assume your slides are electric (Manual says that).  There is, as best I could find, nothing about the hydraulic cylinder or ram in the 2006 manual.  Therefore, the only hydraulic chassis system is the Power Gear.

Jim is quite helpful in the IRV2 write up.  Find the fuse.  If you don’t locate it then locate the pump.  This system works by a signal or voltage to EXTEND coming from the switch.  The switch has to have power…if you popped out the switch, there is two one sets of contacts.  Only one wire is attached to the one side.  This is the light. Let’s call that side the top..  The other set is what works it.  So, on that set, start from the bottom or the side OPPOSITE where you have two side by side wires. The second contact up from the bottom is the POWER WIRE to the  switch.  The bottom and the third one are the controls to the motor.  Now, the motor has its own pump controller.   If you do not have 12 VDC on this contact there is one of two possibilities.  Fuse BLOWN.  Find it. OR, the Lockout Relay is bad.  The lockout  relay is most likely controlled by the ignition  switch.  If the ignition is ON…no power to the switch….so you cannot open when driving.

if you hear NO CLICK and have power to the switch center contact….then there may be an issue with the solenoid.

there is NO a wiring diagrams there.  You follow the plugs and the wiring color code and find the two EXTEND/RETRACT wires that come to pump solenoid.  Measure the voltage there on each one when you push or do the extend or retract.  If you have power there….the solenoid is bad.

that it….
