MBeach and Dalford, you BOTH NAILED it. I found two of the mini-circuit breakers had popped. I pushed them in again and all is well! Thank you BIG TIME. I spent at least 12 hours on this problem.

This is an image of the terminal block on my 2014 Silverback. It is attached inside the front storage bay against the back wall toward the driver side of the rig.

SWBOUTON, Looking at your photos, I have the same system on our 2016 Cedar Creek Silverback 29RE. I just had the same problem. A couple of the jacks stopped midway when doing so and I would get the same clicking sound that you described. I waited a few hours and tried it again and was able to raise them all the way. I'm also interested knowing what the white button controls.

FANTASTIC!!!! Thanks for letting us know. I bet you are relieved! I know I learned a lot about my system. Maybe a little more than I wanted to know! LOL!!

I now know what each of the four valves do by the colored wires (I have hydraulic slides also). I do have a question about the valves while we have some experts on. My 2 back curb side jacks (blue wire) always need manual to bring them all the way up (won't usually fully retract with auto-retract). I notice there is what looks like a black adjusting ring on the top of each valve. Does this adjust any pressure? Or does the blue pressure switch by the pump control when it thinks the auto-retract is done and is not adjustable?

I've looked all over my system and I don't have that mini-circuit breaker. I do have a bus bar but it is much smaller and has no buttons on the sides. I also don't have the red fuse holder or the white button. My components all have early 2011 manufacture dates on them. I'm thinking y'alls are newer and have upgrades?

Congrats again swbouton!! Hopefully that mini-circuit breaker won't keep tripping. Would be interesting to know what caused it, or why nances seem to reset itself (if it was the same thing).

If I find out what that white switch is for or if I get any more answers to the remaining questions I will be sure to post them.

Thanks for all your help and have fun camping!

The white switch next to your level up system allows you to put your slides in and out from outside.. Push the bottom to extend push the top to retract..

And inside your big basement door on the drivers side you will see three knobs. When you close them they will block the slide from opening or closing. This way you can have individual slide room control.

So if you just need to open one slide, close the other two knobs. Or vice versa if you want to close a particular slide..

The black ring on the silver Hydac valves is just a retainer to hold the electrical coil on the valve since the coil is replaceable without opening the hydraulic system. A Hydac valve is either open or closed with no adjustment since it is remotely controlled.

The blue pressure switch closes when the six pistons end their retract stroke and system pressure rises. The control box then turns off the pump motor.

I would double check that all the manual isolation valves are fully open. I would suspect it first since both jacks do not fully retract. It appears to not be a jack problem. Since the pump works fine, the only other thing in the fluid circuit is the Hydac. You may want to manually cycle it open and shut a few times in case something is caught it the valve seat.

It could also be a crimped hydraulic line---doubtful, but possible.

Thank you very much for the info!!! I will check the valve. I'm assuming it would be best to exercise the valve when the jacks are up and not supporting any weight?

Thanks again for your help.
