My Creek is doing the same. Bedroom slides in no problem, the two bigger slides don't want to move.
I've turned my valves and never had to reprime?
Make sure you have enough fluid (trans fluid) in the reservoir. The slides may just be sticking and need of some lube, unfortunately I'm no RV repairman or mine would be fixed by now & I would share the knowledge.
In a pinch you can have someone help push the slide from the outside while you push the button to help it start moving.
I was alone and had to use a large 7/8 (I believe) open end wrench to turn the bar that runs between the two slide out tracks under the slide. Once the slide was about 1/3 of the way in the hydraulics took over and the slides closed.
If and when you find the issue please post up & let us know.

We have come back out to the camper again today, unfortunately I don't even see where a manual crank for the slides would be underneath the slides? The hydraulic motor is running, but it is just sucking up the fluid not moving the slides. Does anybody know enough about it to give us an idea of where and how to locate the 7/8 bit we need to find to do it manually?

You have to crawl under the trailer and look the manual crank is under the slide room.

We are under there but don't see a manual slide crank? What does it look like?

You should have gotten a crank handle with your trailer. That goes on the end of the cross over rod. There should be a roll pin near one end. The handle is slotted and goes over the end to crank the slide in.

I figured that's what that crank was for but we just can't seem to figure out where it fits?

There is a roll pin on both ends and it doesn't seem to fit?

Ok, look for the cross shaft that connects both sides of the drive to the hydraulic ram.

The square bar that goes from each side across the middle right?

One of the ends is where you attach the handle
