Hydraulic Slide outs and front jacks operate at same time??

Help! I have a Wildcat 5th wheel. When I operate the slide outs, my front jacks move. What can cause this? easy fix? dont see any leaks and when I operate front jacks, slide outs are okay.

If I were to take a guess, Id think you have a leaky\sticky hydraulic valve somewhere in the manifold.

thanks for replyrattleNsmoke. Would you happen to know if it is that, how much repair could be?

Are you using the switch that is next to the pump? If you are, that is the emergency backup and it will operate everything at once. Just a thought.

thanks for the reply. No, though. I am using the inside slideout switch.

Honestly, I am just tossing out a possible idea. Hydraulic vales do funny things when they do not operate as intended. As far as cost, that should not matter. If I'm right, I'm sure you'll wanna have it repaired regardless.
