Slide-Out Drifting Troubleshooting
Talked with Equalizer Systems (ES) once and having problems getting them on the line; perhaps you can help me. ES suggested that I swap a good solenoid valve with the Slide having the problem. If drifting stops, then the valve is the problem. If not, then it probably is the hydraulic piston.
Can anyone give me some instructions on how to remove the a solenoid valve?
I also found that the always exposed portion of the piston on the drifting slide is very badly rusted and deeply pitted. The white plastic block to prevent the piston from touching the timing shaft, shows some wear on it. I have a 2012 390BH; and all the other slide piston isn't rusted. I suspect a bad plating job on the rusted piston. There is also a Anti-Creep valve on each cylinder. Do not know if this could be the problem.
A secondary problem is that the safety slide locking bars do not work when put on top of the slide, since it is the bottom that kicks out. When trying to put the safety bar at the bottom, there just isn't a good enough strong flange to put the bar's foot against.
Any help would be appreciated
