Help! My leveling jacks are stuck down and my slides are stuck in

Can anyone help with this. We just moved to a new site and after arrival the jacks went part way down and stopped. The slides won't go out at all. I don't know where to begin. I'm wondering if perhaps the hydraulic fluid is low and am going out to look for it. Any help is appreciated.
We have a 2015 Georgetown XL 360 with two slides.

Hello. Sounds like that may the issue. Is the Hydraulic pump working?

B and B,
How do I know if it's working. I have looked everywhere and can't even find where to check the hydraulic fluid. I have looked through my manuals and there is nothing for any of these systems except normal use.

The front jacks are up but the back ones are fully down. The bed is up against the fuse box so I can't check the fuses.
Thanks again

Me too

Hi Juley,
I have the same problem and can't figure out how to check the fluid level. The manual is void of this information.

Did you acquire a solution? If so, I'd to know what it is.

Found the Hydraulic Fluid Reservoir

OK, I found the hydraulics under the entry stairs. I had to remove the step cover and it is down inside. I can see there is fluid in the tank but there don't appear to be any lines to indicate the appropriate levels. There is a cap with a dipstick and the dipstick does go down into the fluid. Any thoughts??

The breaker for the hydraulics will be near your coach batteries.

There is a circuit breaker under the steps near the batteries, it's black with a couple of terminals on it, it has a red push reset button, if the little red flag is kicked out, it's tripped, just push the red flag back into position and it will click into place, and see if that helps, also engine running, park brake set for jacks to work, engine off - key removed to get slides in/out.

Thank you! I got the jacks up. One of the breakers under the stairs was tripped. However I still can't get the slides out. Any more thoughts?

Still no luck

We finally found the reservoir in an outside compartment under the slide behind the drivers area. The fluid level is fine.

We could not locate a breaker.

Any other ideas will be greatly appreciated.
