Kinda surprised but looks like your slide is hydraulic. Check the fluid levels and for leaks then you will need to turn that pump manual to move the slides.

How would I get it to go out because when I pumped it with the jack handle it came in?

There must be a valve (small socket like thing on front of pump) that can turn one way - then the other - when you pump it is moving the fluid - and that valve would change the flow direction.

Can you read the label on the pump? It might give some clues to who built the slide system. If not factory.

Right when i opened the valve and pumped i was able to get the slide out to come back in all the way slowly. Because it was open alittle when we bought it. Dont know if there is a leak or something making it come back out but i will check in two days when we go up to camp in it.

That helped - found some possible answers for you...

Manuals for Dewald Hydraulic Levellers and Slideouts

Bleeding Air out of Hydaulic Slideout System


The first link actually has a PDF file that has some good details on the operation and looks like there is some manual operation details.

Yes I found the PDF for the power gear earlier this evening that helped also. And for some reason the trailer doesn't have any stabilizing jacks? Will I need those if I want to use the slide out or should I just be ok with on jack under the slide out?

Slide-outs work well when the stabilizers are down and the unit is level... That being said - the slide-out will operate without stabilizers just fine (or it should). It is recommended to not put any stabilizers or jacks under the slide out. There are slide out stabilizers (I have a pair) and used them on our last travel trailer when we were setup for an entire summer (they were free)... But I was very careful to adjust them on a regular basis as the main trailer settled down.

Most travel trailers only have crank down/motorized stabilizers (not to be confused with jacks)... they just help stabilize the rocking motion. You could even use the old free-style hand stabilizers. These work as well as any others.
