Customer Question
My slide is not...

My slide is not extending. pump is engaging.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fluids recently?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2002 beaver patriot

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Patriot yourself? What have you tried so far?

Slide worked fine last week. had some issues with the leveling, tried to do a re set on the level brain. when I did the semi auto level red fluid dumped out. think this might have affected the slide

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I checked the fluid in the rear over flow white box and topped it off after the dump
