2013 Wildwood DXL Slide Out Question

I just purchased*a 2013 Wildwood DXL*402QBQ, it has 4 slide outs and I can only find one slide out*switch. Does the one switch bring in all the slides?* Thanks Bruce

I believe that RV has hydraulic slides, so it only has one panel switch for all slides.

You can operate the slides one at a time, but it requires manipulating the manifold valves to do that.

Electric slides normally have individual switches and hydraulic slides normally have one switch for all slides.

According to the brochure it has hydraulic slides, so if yours has electric slides it's different than the brochure indicates.

Thank you. You're absolutely*right, they are hydraulic. At first glance*they looked like the electric ones on my old coach. So what happens, I push the button and they come in one at a time?* * *Bruce

You press the button and the pump supplies pressure to all the rams at the same time. Due to friction, weight, and the slide mechanisms they come in and go out more or less one at a time, but more than one can move at once.

As the pump puts pressure...

As the pump puts equal pressure on all four slides, the one with the least resistance moves first. When it completes its path (or hits a sticky spot) its resistance increases and the one that now has lowest resistance moves.

So typically, the smallest one or one with lightest load goes first and one that's largest or heaviest-loaded goes last--in either direction.
