Cardinal 3350 Slideouts

My wife and I just brought home our 3350 a few days ago. Is there a process that can be followed that would allow us to only put out one slide out at a time? While stored next to our home we cannot put out the slide out on the driver's side but would like to put out the slide outs for the bedroom and/or the door side of the 5th wheel.

most probably yes. i don't know the layout of your model, but from your question i suspect it is similar to ours. we have three sildeouts that are hydraulically activated. you press the slideout out button and the hydraulic pump runs and pushes the slide outs, one after another. the that moves with the least pressure moves first ending with the one that needs the most pressure. up in the front near the hydraulic pump is a manifold with three screw in type valves in it. these valves control the fluid getting pumped to each slideout actuator. if you do not want a slideout to get moved out when you push the slideout out button, simply turn the valve off for that actuator so the pump does not pump fluid into it.

X2 Just a point of advice. It's easier to turn the valve if you just bump the slide switch to take the pressure off. Here's a pic of my hydraulics. The valve is the silver block looking thing with the 3 black thumb screw knobs.

IRC

The valves to control which slides move is called the Individual Room Control (IRC). These valves do not control pressure. The IRC valves are either open or closed. Lippert does not put the IRC on the RV, Forrest River installs it. I got this info from calling Lippert Technical assistance.

I cut a short piece of hose and slide/glued it over the knobs. The rubber hose makes it much easier to turn the knobs. So does relieving the pressure before turning the valves.
