On the way home from Goshen.....

.........this morning, at Bloomington, IN..........hit the SLIDE IN button and the bedroom slide went IN, as always first. But the other two just sat there laughing at me. Motor noise, but no slide movement.

???

Turn on, off, on, off, on, off...........finally they went in, and we are in Paducah, KY KOA. Slides out. Hopefully in morning slides go in, for final trek home.

But WTFO????

No answers yet.............

It happened again at 2nd stop on way home. I lubed all gears and tracks with Slide Lube. I JUST now got home and thought I'd try in/out/in/out while it is hooked up to power (I have 50 amp at home).

The bedroom slide (which is not accessible to lube) worked, but slowly.

Then the 2nd slide, dining room......wouldn't go. I hit button on/off a couple of times and it finally went. When IT went, the kitchen slide went.

I left both slides out...........

Got to wondering if all the rain at Goshen caused some rust or something??? Pretty scary to be in BumDum, Outtastate, and can't get slides closed to come home!

I'm not going to be much help but have you checked the level of your hydraulic fluid?

You probably all ready check this but is the selector switch partially closed or open in the service bay. This may be causing the slides not to open and or close sometimes that can be moved accidentally.

OakM........not sure how to check.

Jim..........haven't thought of that. I do NOT think this is an issue, but will check.

Been gone all day......will check in morning. Thanks guys.

Emailed factory contact.......they asked if trailer was level. It was.

No one seems to have a good grasp of this issue........of course, it has to be ME that is only one having this problem.................

Your Cedar Creek might be different than my Silverback but checking the hydraulic level is easy. The pump and reservoir are hidden behind a movable panel in the front storage compartment. The reservoir is opaque so you can visually check to see the fluid level. Here are a couple of pics of mine.

The panel in my RV has a finger hole to make opening the panel easy.

Here’s what the reservoir looks like.

You might try posting this issue in the Cedar Creek subforum and change the title of the post to reflect the actual slide problem.

Also on the side of the pump casing should be a manual relief valve. If that valve is partially open or leaking by it will lower the system pressure enough that only the lightest smallest slide will travel. Check the knob and make sure it's tight while you're checking the fluid level.

Jim.....switches are all correct.

Oakman.....here is pic of reservoir. Is it low? If so, what specific fluid goes in it, do you know?

EDIT: DUH! This pic is with slides OPEN! So, I'm assuming (??) I can't know if it's low until the slides are closed, right??


Thanks.

As long as there is still fluid in the reservoir with the slides out, you should be good on fluid. You can use transmission fluid to top off, FYI.
