Slide Outs

Newbie question for the group. Just took delivery of Silverback 33IK and it's in storage waiting on delivery of truck. We would like to get inside, measure, provision, etc. But there is another RV pretty tight up against the door side of our unit. Can we extend the two slides (kitchen and bedroom) without extending the third slide? The manual, forums and the web don't have many answers.

Yes, each slide operates independent of the other slides. So you can extend any slide you wish while leaving the other 2 slides closed, or 2 of 3 opened, your choice!

Maybe not if hydraulically operated. Some hydraulic slides can not be independently operated.

If they can be extended independently there will be a switch for each one.

If it's like our Cedar Creek, you will find 3 knobs in the water hook up bay. Turn the one that says "Main" to shut off the hydraulic flow to that slide. Have someone watching to make sure the knobs are not mislabeled!
