hydraulic pump problems

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.

Here's a link to the manual in PDF format for the Lippert Hydraulic slideout and Hydraulic Landing Gear. It explains how to extend and retract manually.

I failed to mention the mini-breaker for the slide out. If you follow the positive lead from the battery to where it connects to a small box there are some mini-breakers on the side of that box. The breakers are little black buttons that push in. They are itsy bitsy, so if you see anything that looks like not much more than a black mark on the side of a box, that’s it. The box may even be hidden behind a black rubber cover, it was on my 2004 Wildcat. I’m sorry I can’t explain this any better nor do I have photos of the mini-breakers. Good luck with your problem.

I did find the mini-breakers and I think the problem may be with the breaker and not the solenoid - Thanks for the help

A lot of people replace that factory breaker with a higher amp one. I myself went to an auto parts store and purchased one and piggy backed it on. Slides now no longer stops mid travel.

I don't think I would use a higher amp one!
Maybe a auto reset but not higher amp

Did you buy your 2006 Wildcat new or is this a recent used purchase? I ask this because the mini-breaker problem was a common problem for the year of Wildcat you own and I'm surprised the problem hasn't show up before now. The factory fix was a high amp auto-reset breaker.

Been having some slide-out trouble with my 04 Wildcat. These suggestions are helpful. Have any of you had problems with your carpet getting wet underneath the slide-out while running in the rain? I understand Forest River has some fix for this but I have not been able to contact the appropriate person via phone. Any help greastly appreciated.
