Slides opening slightly

Have noticed at times on my 38RD two of my slides are slightly opened at the bottom even when all switches have been turned off. They are completely closed when I leave , but are slightly opened again when I return. There is no power on from the battery ether. Again, all slides are closed completely at the time I leave the trailer. What's the Problem?

Had this on one of my earlier Fifth wheel SOB and was a hydraulic piston used for the slide out leaking internally that would allow fluid to pass causing the slide to inch out

Agree ... an internal piston seal is leaking on one or more slide cylinders or the check valve in the pump is leaking past. Past that thought ... Check your fluid level in the reservoir (@1" from the top with all slides in and level up retracted) and look for oil drips from a leak in a hose or fitting.
