Slides Moving With Landing Gear

I have a 2008 Wildcat with a Lippert hydraulic system. The slides and landing gear work simultaneously no matter which switch is used. I have to get my truck under the rig if I want to slide the slides in because the landing gear all works at the same time. Very frustrating.
Does anyone have any ideas or experience with this?

Has it always worked like this? So do the slides go out/in if you only press the landing gear control? Go to the lippert site and they have all kinds of docs. I would check the hydraulic valves. But actually I would probably call an independent service. Might save $$$ and frustration in the long run.

It hasn't always done that. I replaced the valves but didn't correct the problem.

Ah, solenoids? Control board? I don't know your level of expertise, but I know when I'm likely to spend lots of time and $$ chasing a problem I can't readily diagnose. Usually cheaper to call an expert. It's just finding one that is tough sometimes. Good luck, and let us know what the fix was when you find it!

Sorry. The landing gear and slides should work separately. There are separate switches for each unit, the slide and landing gear. Overnight all the switches synched together and started operating the gear at the same time.

Check the grounds real good and any harness that "move" during operation.
Easier said than done, but a great feeling of accomplishment when you find it!

Are the switches on the same control panel?

Neighbor's Riverstone started doing that. He said it was a bad solenoid module. They had to loosen a set screw to get one of his slides to operate. The downside was it allowed it to bypass something else and one of his slides moved when he put the gear down. Probably something similar to that.
