Slides wont go out after winter storage

Hi, Well its above freezing now so I uncovered my 34RL, lowered the hydraulic levelers and tried to extend the slides but no movement. The hydraulic pump runs and sounds like it pressurizes like the slides are extended but no movement. I isolated the 2 rear slides and the bedroom slide still does not move. plenty of fluid in the reservoir.
The levelers are working okay so I know the hyd pump is working.
Any ideas ?

It sounds like the solenoid isn't diverting fluid to the slide circuit. When activating the slide switch see if you can tell if the solenoid is clicking.

I am not familiar with this system, but could the solenoid be jumped to see if it is the problem?

You could power the solenoid directly to see if it actuates.

Check with a screw driver.

I have not worked on much hydraulic in RV's but have in industrial work. Acrew driver held up to the coil will tell you if it is getting a signal to energize and is a real quick check.
Sometimes a firm tap will fix a stuck solenoid. If that works than I would replace it.

Good luck, hope this is timely but am afraid it is a little too late.

Slides problem area

I purchased a 2019 dynamax sprinter. It had 6000 miles on it.
My second trip got to the park put my levelers down and tried to put the slide out.
It started going out crooked but I didnít notice right away. Called a mobile tec. He was able to get the slide back in far enough so I could drive home. Thank goodness I was only 3 hours away.
Took it to my repair person. This coach has no warranty but after one new rail and 900.00. The slide comes in but really screechís the last 6 inches or so.
Iím being told this brand has a lot of problems.
So two fold question. Has anyone experienced problems and if it starts Togo out crooked again what to do. Iím a single woman so not a lot of tec Davy or muscle.
