Urgent problem with slide

Wouldn't. You know it I am leaving on a big trip tomorrow an am having hydrolic problems.with a slide


Before I put.the unit away for.the winter.I noticed that I was having periodic issues with slide.creep on my sofa slide of a.390bh berk.

Brought the unit home. And attempted to open slide for loading.

At first ... nothing happened other than the usual noise. Kitchen slide working properly. After cycling the Jacks a couple of times the slide popped open about 6 inches. Although would not open of close any more. Cycle.jacks a couple of more times and I am able to open fully but will not close. Kitchen still working fine.

No apparent leaks.

Fluid resiviour is at.a level between 2 lines with sofa slide open.

Can anyone help me

I need to leave.town tomorrow.afternoon to drive my son to football camp 14 hours away

Tim

All I can think is double check the hydro fluid with all jacks up and all slides in. Which it sounds like you did.

My slides are out and jacks down but mine is usually filled to here.

Is there a way to get it back in manually. I would like to check levels again with both slides in and Jacks up

Level is currently very low however Jacks are down on steep grade and sofa slide is out.

If it was a fluid problem wouldn't I have problems with kitchen slide also

Urgent problem with slide

Not sure how to manually retract.

The only suggestion I can think of is to add a bit of hydro fluid now and see if you can get the jacks up. Start with a half of a quart and see if that helps. If you add to much and retract the jacks and slide and it overflows its a mess to clean up. I don't think you will "bend" anything if that happens - but just a mess.

There is no problem with the Jacks or the kitchen slide. The problem is isolated to sofa slide. It is currently open and will not close

I would give Equalizer a call and see if they can walk you through some procedures and possibly get the slide working.
