Slideout hydraulic syatem

I belive that a lot of my problems are due to air in the hydraulic system. How do you remove air from the system.

Our hydraulic systems are self bleeding ... cycle the slides in and out completely 3-4 times ... same with hydraulic levelers if you have them.

Check the level in the reservoir tank. It should be about 2/3 full when all the slides and jacks are in. If its way down check all the slides and jacks for leakage.
