Our manual is generic Forest River - we have no idea where to find the hydraulic pump if there is one. Can you tell me that?
We would be happy to operate it manually but we need to know where it is and how to access it. Thanks

This happened to me as well. When the slide is over loaded, over extended or over retracted it is possible for the gearbox to "lock up" and to protect the gears the clutch will slip.

The solution is to try again with some weight removed from the slide (if you think it might be that), or use the opposite side stub shaft and your landing gear/stab crank to start it moving. Once it moves again, (remove the crank!) and try the buttons again.

Chris what could the reason my outside sink is not draining? This is the second time it has done this. My camper is a 2015 312 bhx. It is our second trip and we've had it only a month. I made a post in another spot but did not get a remedy. I will be bringing it in this Friday when we leave Austin for a window replacement. Can you help me if I can do something or just wait till I get to the dealer at camping world in katy tx? Thanks Paul

Just curious, did you try it with the galley dump valve open? I'm wondering if the tank isn't vented correctly.

Yes open and closed. The level monitor next to outside sink says full and galley and shower inside are reading empty. I was thinking of venting also but it was draining fine. I closed both grey to fill for flush on black and sink would not drain.

Are you sure you are pulling the tank valve for the outside kitchen?? See below:

"Looks like this was discussed in another post: Ask the Wildcat factory....

"I have the 2013 312BHX with the O.K.. There are 3 handles, 1 for each tank as you specified. The TOTAL capacity is 150 gallons for the gray water tanks. 2 of the handles are in the same compartment as the black water drain and water hookup. The 3rd drain handle for the outside kitchen is on the opposite side of the camper in front of the rear stabilizer legs motor. Just look underneath and in front of the motor and you will see the handle."

I will address the need for better labeling of the outside kitchen tank again with my plant today!

Chris, figured I'd ask this while you're on here. An all too common problem with several brands is the slide floors. The darco fabric wears and tears, sometimes where the floor is secured up through the floor, the water can wick into those holes, some just barely coat the edge of the wood on the slide floor ends with paint when darco is not used, and in the complaint list goes. Several threads on this issue, across many FR products, and non-FR products.

Rockwood / Flagstaff seems to be one of the few that use the 90 degree plastic glide on the slide floor ends. They tuck under the slide end wall trim and go several inches under the slide. This solves the potential water wick problem and the wearing darco problem. Not sure the make of those, but we had the same thing installed under our slides due to same potential issue. Ours are made by Majestic Formed Plastics.

I'm not real familiar with the specifics of a wildcat slide floor, but do know that I have seen several pre-2014's with this issue. What is Wildcat doing now? Do they have the glides installed, or do they have a better coated slide floor? Doesn't seem too many manufacturers want to change to a better set up.

Although Wildcat doesn't fit our needs, we do keep up with all makes and models to see where everybody's headed. Between the different frame, axles and using a MorRyde pin box, it looks like y'all are headed in the right direction.
A great question and one that I've not yet had. You'll be happy to know that, after many months of testing and prototypes earlier this year, Wildcat has already implemented a number of changes to promote smoother and longer-lasting slide room operation. The ABS glides you mentioned ARE in use on Wildcat's slide room floors in current production. This plastic wraps the bottom corners and provides a finished surface for this potentially high-wear area. We do not use a Darco fabric wrap on the bottoms of our slide rooms; all above floor slide rooms use vacuum-bonded fiberglass (white, same construction as sidewalls!) and all flush-floor slides use a specially coated manufactured wood product (black), treated for external use.

Thank you for your comments on Wildcat's direction! We're listening hard to our dealers and customers for valuable feedback. The product is truly unique in the marketplace and we're banking on these advancements for the future!

Thanks for the reply Chris. I hope the direction y'all are taking bleeds over to some of the other FR builders.

Herk, I just love your library. You have something on everything you should be a rep....
