Thanks for the link. I wish we could have this saved as a sticky so it was easy to find. Great info!

That slide is actually slightly misaligned - the front does not fit tight while the back does. It's not major, but some day when I have the time, I will attempt to adjust the timing shaft. Instructions to do so are also in the support section.

Cory..... When you did your bleeding, how many times did you do it?? The procedure just says "repeat", but not how many times.

I'm finally ready to do this procedure. I've found recently that my jacks are making the "clicking" sound; BUT if I move the coach to a different park, it MAY quit clicking. I was in Pahrump, NV for 6 weeks it clicked all the time.

Set up here in Yuma, AZ a week ago (for the winter) and the jacks haven't clicked once. Also, I've found that when they are clicking, they are also losing "lift"; in other words they are slowly retracting by themselves. BUT, when they don't click the jacks hold level perfectly.

I'm fairly certain that I have air...... You can tell by the sound of the pump, sorta like chalk on a blackboard.

Boowho??

I did mine three times just to make sure. It took a couple of hours since I did the jacks and front slides alternatively. As I recall, I'd move the slides or jacks to position and then wait 30 or more minutes. I think the instructions said wait 20 minutes, but I had the time so did a bit longer. I must admit that it did indeed work and so far has not come back. We only use our coach 3-5 days per month so get to exercise the hydraulics a fair bit. Prior to doing this, one of the front slides would creep out after a week or two in storage. That has not happened since. And I guess if/when it does, I can just repeat the procedure.

We have not been out in a while, but have plans for Thanksgiving week so are quite looking forward to the Texas Hill Country for that.
