No controls added(yet). I'm doing head scratching now, to figure out best way to mount them. All slides are working, I realized tho that if something does happen, I didn't know how to manually pull them in.
The slides we need to come out to get to the kitchen area are the largest, and naturally the last to come out. If I put a gate valve in the other two, close them, I should be able to open the ones I need. No?
4 are hyd, 1 is elec.
Thoughts?

Fitter/fabricator. Can't stand this system! And the lightest, smaller slides come out first, so blocking them in should do it! Bed/bath are reachable with slides in!

Mine is the same way. All 4 are hydraulic with no way to select each one. I didn't realize the ability to select them wasnt standard when we bought it so didn't really give it a thought when we inspected it.

It hasn't been too big of a deal yet, but I am interested in hearing and seeing your experience in tackling this. Please keep us posted.

This brings back Memories of the night at a RV Rest area this "New Dually Dodge/5wheel/with a trailer loaded with Golf cart" pulled in a parking Slot between two of us already parked for the night! There was All kinds of Yelling/cussing/flashlights,when a Knock on our door ask if we would MOVE because their Slides could not be Opened with our and the unit on the other side parked Legally! They said they could NOT use or even get In without the slides in the OUT position! They left the Rig there and walked across the street to a Motel! That was 9 years ago,I cant believe in 2016 the systems are Still like that! Youroo!!
