Slide out selector valve

Is it hard to put a slide out control valve to stop slide outs from coming out that you don't want to come out? When we stop to get something out of the fridge while traveling the slide out I need out comes out last. Our last RV had them and loved it when I really needed to use them.

Now there is a good question. All of our past RVs had individual switches for each slide out. Of course all of the past slide outs have also been electric powered.

With our new Wildcat the bedroom slide is electric and on it's own switch. However the opposing slides in the main level of the trailer are hydraulic and extend one side at time but on the same switch.

I would be nice if there was a switch allowing or a choice to open one or the other independently.

With my wildcat it would be difficult to do since the pump has no valves on it. It just changes direction to open or close slides. If your unit has valves for each slides then it would be easy. But I doubt that due to cost they don't generaly do that. It means they would have to run seperate valves and lines to each cylinder and etc.

I was hoping for an easy fix but know it probably isn't.

Our last RV had individual controls knobs to turn off slides. It was hydraulic slides. Montana. I guess I'll just deal with it. I really love this new RV but I guess there's always something you like better on the old RV. Lol

I agree, my wife like our last RV more than our current Wildcat 5th wheel. Of course it was a 40' triple slide diesel pusher fully loaded out..LOL!!!

I have auto level and the slide manifolds tap off the leveling manifold. Each slide has its own black knob valve on the slide manifolds to shut off flow to an individual slide.

Now the advertising says I am supposed to have "individual slide room selector switches" but I only have one switch and the valves.

Well at least you can stop a slide if you want and that's what I wish I had. We are snowbirds in Thousand Trails. We are at South Clermont by 27 and 192.
