First weekend camping after getting the hydraulics fix at the dealer. Currently the jacks will not go down and the bedroom slide is stuck out about 6 inch. The system is dead. Any suggestions??? The manual way doesn't work either. Help

Can you hear the hydraulic pump operating?? If not start looking for fuses in the pump electrical supply. On my 337 its all under the steps and there are systems that are separately supplied direct from the coach batteries.

Hydros - Update

I spent the entire Saturday trying to the system working and my slides/jack in. The dealer was pretty useless (like most times). So I called the emergency number for Lippert and talked many times to a very knowledgeable young lady that walked me through the problem. It turns out the the dealer must have over filled the system and the pressure burned up the motor. It took hours of bleeding the pressure out of the system, but I finally got the slides in and the jacks up. I'm going to be taking the MH to Goshen, IN to have Lippert fix the entire system. Hopefully they can fix the entry step as well.

By the way, I took it to the dealer for warranty service last week. Here's the report:
Number if issues: 12
Items fixed: 1
Items made worse: 2
Additional items broken: 2
Total time in service: 9.5 hrs
Will I ever go back to that dealer: NO WAY!!
Future camping trips without major hydraulic problems: Priceless!! (my kids heard too many new cuss words this weeked)

I had a smiliar problem with my 2007 359TS. Under the entry step, there were 2 problems. One was a relay that had tripped, easy enough to reset and the second was a blown fuse. Once the relay was reset and the fuse replaced, the jacks started working again and I was able to get the slides in again.
I had it posted on this site somewhere but can't remember where. Hope this helpst.

I understand the dealer problem I took my 360 DS back for warranty work with twelve Items and got no results from my stay of over 30 days at RV CITY, in Benton, ArK.
