Cool Slide out problems - help

I pulled my 5th wheel out of storage for the spring. The slide out is giving me problems. It's a hydraulic system and when you engage it it will stop part way through moving the slide in or out.

I've validated it's not the battery being low (fully charged and brand new)
I've also tried while on shore power.

I've checked for obstructions, I've cleaned the slides, etc.

The Pump simply stops. Pushing the button again does nothing. Waiting 5 seconds you can hear a click as if a circuit resets within the pump and everything works again. Begin moving the slide in or out again until it's stops. Wait 5 seconds and do it again. While it's moving nothing seems out of the ordinary. It's seems to me like a safety feature in the pump is triggering but I don't know enough about them nor what would be causing it at this point.

Any help or insight is GREATLY appreciated.

Sounds like the circuit breaker is popping. As it cools down
It snaps back and works again.
might want to check into getting a new one and a spare.
either the circuit breaker is bad or there's to much load.

I have a 2006 Wildcat 5th wheel and I believe the solenoid on the hydraulic pump has gone out. The slide is out and the jacks are up. It there an override or a someway I can manually bring the slide in and the jack down.

Did you ever figure this problem out? I have the same issue when bringing the slide in. I replaced the hydraulic motor electric solenoid and that did not work. Help greatly appreciated.

Thanks much for the reply. Do you remember if this fuse made your solenoid click when it stopped? I looked at the two of the three automatic fuses close to the battery and the black tabs never did pop out. Did the fuse you replaced have a pop-out tab?
Thanks

As a new owner of a EVO T2050 trailer that has slide out sides can anyone help giving advice on how to close a side if it wont close automatically? Is there anyway of bypassing the motor and closing the walls. It could be an issue once we get on the road.

So it works fine now, but you just want to know what to do if it fails?

There is usually a manual retract procedure in your manual for the slide out.
I have no idea who made your frame or what kind of slide out you have.

There are many different models of slide out as well; all have different manual procedures. Wish I could be of more help.
