Question about hydraulic operation

Did not receive a reply in the main forum so I thought I would direct my question to the company reps - hope you dont mind

I am trying to help out my father who just purchased a 2005 Wildcat and I believe the model is 28RK.

It has hydraulic jacks and slide. There is a button in the trailer that is for the slide and there is a button in the front on the outside to lower the jacks.

On his first trip he had some fellow campers help him and the issue is that those two switches do the same thing.

When the trailer is parked you hitch up, raise the jacks and then the slide starts to come in.

When ready to move you do the same thing except the slide comes in first and then the jacks go up. The only inconvenience is that sometimes you may want to raise or lower the jacks and not mess with the slide.

Does anyone know if this is the normal operation on these or is something not hooked up right. (I can post a picture later if that will help)


Thanks in advance!
Michael

If I remember right someone else had same problem and the solution is that at the pump there is a bypass valve that should be closed down tight and then they will work as they should it is possible sombody opened this valve causing your problem.

If you would contact the Wildcat service department and ask for Rod @ 574 206 7600 he can get you answers ASAP that will get you going!

Safe travels,

Tomcat
