Slide out order

Hi guys. New Here. Just purchased a new to me, 2012, Silverback 35BQ4. Is there any way to change the order in which the slide outs come out? Current order is bedroom, bunk room then main. I would like the main room first.

I'm presuming your slides are hydraulic like mine.

Hydraulic slides always move the lightest slide first, followed by the next lightest, then the heaviest. It's just a property of the hydraulics to move whatever moves the easiest. You can stop a slide from moving by closing the appropriate valve (for maintenance or other reasons) but you can't change the order.

And welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the help. I was curious, if we are loading the frindge and such, I wouldn't necessarily need in the bed rooms, just the main area.

Thanks for the help

On the 2015 Silverback 33rl, 36 ft... Shut off BR valve and two main opposing open. I do this all the time traveling to eat comfortably with the family. We pull thru rest areas at meal time and seek spots where slides can be safely extended. You DO WANT the lighter slide out to provide needed balance at extension. In fact, half the time, I extend dining fully and refer side half way out. The goal is not to weight burden any slide not fully extended. The refer half way allows solid footing OFF the slide and ease of refer use. No biggie.
Just always remember...,full extension before load bearing ( meaning people added weight to the suspension)
Travel safe!😀
