Different slide question

Brand new Silverback 31ik. Took it out for first camping trip. All 3 slides worked well. Noticed a rip in bedroom linoleum under bed. Looks like metal protruding. Made a repair appt. and waiting. Tried slide out....heard bang and then slide went out. Here is the issue. Made camping reservation a year ago and donít want to give it up. Willing to live with slide in till repair appt. Have. In Command system.Have designated bedroom slide touchpad.Ē thought all I would have to do was leave slide untouched...however, when I engage other slide touchpad, all slides move. Read many posts indicating if fuse is blown slide will not operate. Pulled fuse....still worked. Disconnected shore power, disconnected battery still worked. Being a newbie I am at a loss. Is this something to do with hydraulic system? All I want to do is disable the bedroom slide till repair appt.

One hydraulic pump usually serves your whole system. Sometimes there are shut offs installed on the lines so you can isolate systems individually, but it's not very common I don't think. Never hurts to take a look though.
Cut it 3 times and it's still too short...

You should have a set of small knobs or valves (mine are adjacent to the water controls) that regulate pressure between the pump and the individual slide rams.

If they are not labelled, closing them sequentially should identify the one that will get you what you want.

Hope this helps.

Once slides are in, go to bay, there are 3 valve knobs. CLOSE the one for the slide you don't want to open, and open the rest.

Different slide problem

Many thanks for all your answers. I found one hydraulic valve marked slides. Unfortunately I donít think Iím going to be able to achieve my goal .
