Levelers and slide problem

I just purchased a 2004 Georgetown 359 class a. Having an issue. When I level coach once level the front slide comes out with level controls not slide control. If I try slide control nothing happens. However the two bedroom slides work normal. Anyone have any ideas? It has a lippert level slide system.

My best bet is that one of your valves at the valve body(attached to reservoir) is leaking by the valve.
It also may be that the valves are not totally closed and the allen screws need to be opened and closed that are located at the end of each valve.
It just may be contaminated oil as they say you should replace the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) every few years and flush the whole system.
You can do it yourself as it takes the regular cheap ATF fluid.

Here are a few manual's if you don't have them.
Yours may not be the same as it is older than mine.

Iggy, how the heck do you keep your valves and lines so clean? Mine have oil residue all over them.

This was a very early picture when new. But to answer your question I wash them with a hose every now and then. I do wipe the valve bodies down and try to keep it as clean as possible.
This way I'm able to see if I have any leaks.
I now have 36,000 miles and have noticed the orange color lines are starting to fade.
Thanks it.

Thanks for all the help. I agree I think i have a valve sticking. I was able to find some old manuals online.
