Customer Question
rv full wall slide in...
rv full wall slide in my 2004 rexhall is not balancing the hydraulic fluid. One cylinder is working to extend and not retract and the other is not working at all.Checked for leaks and pump is fine because other wall slide operates fine. This should be a self bleeding system. Seems to have air lock in line. Brad

Hi my name is Robert....

Did you have this issue prior to changing the line out? IS this a HWH slide room?

Thanks, Robert

no issues before Yes it is an HWH slide room Brad

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK

What I would do to start is go to the solenoids and open the retract solenoid (should have a T handle or 1/4 nut on the end) and briefly run the pump this will help get any air out, also I might swap the solenoid wires and see if the problem changes want to make sure you do not have a failed solenoid. A room that will only run one way with the pump running could be a solenoid.... Let me also take a look, I think I recall HWH having some information on getting the air out of the lines. Will respond shortly... RobertOK
