Hi, this is Dale. I see your question has been up for a while. I'll try to help you as best I can. I'll need a little more information before I can attempt to provide an answer.

1. Is your Coachmen a Motorhome, Travel Trailer or 5th Wheel?

2. What is the model name of your RV?

3. What room does the slide out operate?

4. Is there any manufacturer information on the faceplate of the room operation switch?

5. When the room operation switch is pressed do you hear any clicking, motor running, etc?

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dale W.

It is a 32ft class A Coachman Catalina it has one slide that operates the kichen and living room. It is a HWH hydraulic system and when i press the button the pump works and makes pressure. Changed one hyd hose because it was leaking but not the problem.
RV Mechanic: D. Wood, RV Parts Store Owner replied 12 years ago
OK, thank you for the information. To help identify the specific HWH system, can you tell me if the leveling jacks are operated with a joystick or a touch pad?

They are operated with a touch pad and the jacks are working fine.

In my opinion the most likely cause is a faulty retract solenoid valve. The best solution is to properly troubleshoot the system rather than throw parts at it.

The procedures for troubleshooting are below. These steps are based on your statement that the rams are pressurized, but not moving. If the rams are not pressurizing, be sure to let me know.

The pump runs

under a load

The retract solenoid valve is not opening. While pushing the room

control switch toward "RETRACT", check between the (BLACK)

5100 and (WHITE) 6245 wires of the retract valve plug for +12

power. If power is present, replace the retract solenoid valve. If

power is not present, check between the (BLACK) 5100 wire and

ground. If power is present, repair the (WHITE) 6245 wire in the

plug.

NOTE:

Low voltage can cause solenoid valves to not open even though

the pump is running.

NOTE:

The following checks and test must be performed with the room

control switch being pushed and the pump must be running.

Power is not present on the (BLACK) 5100 and (WHITE) 6245 of

the retract valve plug. Check the (WHITE) 6245 wire for a good

ground connection. Check Pin 13 of the room control switch while

pushing the switch toward retract. If power is present, then fix the

(BLACK) 5100 wire in the manifold harness. If power is not present

on Pin 13, check Pin 11 of the room control switch. If power is present

replace the switch. If power is not present on Pin 11, check the

(RED) 6810 wire in the room manifold harness for +12 power. If

power is present the key switch is bad, replace the room operator

panel. If power is not present on the (RED) 6810 wire, Check the

15 amp fuse on the (RED) 6810 wire of the manifold harness at the

pump relay. If the fuse is not blown, the problem is the (RED) 6810

wire. If the fuse is blown, unplug the extend and retract solenoid

valves. Replace the fuse and retry. If the fuse blows, replace the

room extension manifold harness. If the fuse does not blow, plug

the retract valve in and retry. If the fuse blows, replace the retract

solenoid valve. If the fuse does not blow, replace the extend solenoid

valve.
