Blue Ridge 5th wheel - slides won't move

I have a Blue Ridge 5th wheel with hydraulic slides (3 slides- 1 control). the slide has stopped working - at this point it is 3/4 the way out. Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix?

Check all fuses, both in the main fuse panel and between the battery and pump. Also check charge in batteries as low batteries can cause fuses to blow.

Check the battery circuit breakers. They can be reset

Try a jumper over the auto reset breaker at top of bus bar. I replaced mine

Let us know the outcome so we can all learn. Thanks!

Not every RV with hydraulics is setup the same. Mine is an older one and has no type of resettable fuses/breakers in relation to the pump and valves. I only have 2 inline fuses and one fuse in the fuse block.

When the hydraulic slide on my Georgetown failed I had to replace the reversing solenoid. My leveling jacks had failed too. Took a mobile repair tech to show me what was wrong. But I was able to replace myself.

we have control valves that allow you to not run a slide or to only run one. check to see if all the valves are turned to the open direction. should have asked first if your pump runs and if any other slides move in and out if so then check valves if not don't pay any attention to this
