OKGive me a few, and I will provide some direction, there should be a way to also manual retract the room so you can get on the road as well, as an expert that has worked on these questions it would be hard for me to say where a loose wire would be due to the amount of wires but lets see what I can find out...

OK Looks like a HWH system, make sure the parking brake is set, and you have the engine running, if it will not work go outside and look for a circuit breaker which should be on a panel on the forward interior wall of the passenger side storage compartment just ahead of the rear wheels. IT will have 7 or 8 push button breakers and should be marked slide-room. If that does not work you should have a crank handle and socket that has a cutout you stick the crank handle in and then you turn to bring the room in. IF the battery voltage was low or the parking brake set the room would not work, IF you click HERE and see 2-10,2-11 it will talk about operation, show the crank handle and the breaker.. Hope this helps.IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a rating, it is the only way I get credit for helping.... Robert

Hydraulics not working, need to retract slide out. Itasca
First time using RV since May. Discovered leak on forward slideout. When brought the hydraulic jacks up, noticed the drivers side aft jack came up very slowly. Drove to camp ground and extended only the bedroom slide out. When we got ready to leave, the bedroom slideout barely budged and moved only a few inches then stopped. Found the hydraulic tank below the dipstick. Filled hydraulic tank. Tried the slideout and nothing happens. No customary noise. Just silence and no movement. Opened the solenoid valves 4 turns and manually pushed the slideout in. To drive, to repair facility, do I leave the solenoid valves open or closed? … read more
