Hydraulic Landing Gear/Slideout problem

I have a 2012 Sierra 365saq, and the automatic breaker trips at least a dozen times while pulling in the slides or lifting landing gear. The slides and landing gear go out/down with no problem. Was told it was probably air in the lines, and to make sure resevoir was full. Did that, no change. Anyone have similar experience?

Two possible causes that I can think of. First...is a weak battery, as the voltage drops the motor pulls more amps causing the breaker to pop. But, most likely,it is a bad or too small breaker.
Mine would pop all the time, even when plugged into shore power. I replaced the breaker and have not had a problem since.

It happens whether under shore power or fully charged battery and only when going in/up. Considered the breaker, but would think that would trip in either direction. If it is air in lines, anyone have ideas on bleeding the system?

I have a 2012 sandpiper 365saq and it does the same thing. Drives me crazy.
