Is there some sort of locking mechanism I'm not aware of? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Still have another 800 miles to go and was hoping for a quick solution.
No "locking mechanism". The hydraulic valves do the job. They are on the manifold attached to the pump.
Low fluid not likely for retract. If it's low with everything retracted, you probably
do have a leak. However, if it is more than one slide, a leak is unlikely.
The most likely culprit is air in the system. LCI hydraulics are self bleeding. Soooo, the first thing to try after checking your fluid level is to bleed the air out.
Try fully cycling the effected slides 3 or more times. You will want to be plugged into shore power when doing this.
Hope this works for you. If not, there are other things to try before you have make a lock (2x4s cut to fit)
