Customer Question
I have a 1999...

I have a 1999 Winnebago grand tour Vectra, with 2 slides. it has a HWH hydraulic system, that operates both slides and auto leveling system. I have 2 problems, large kitchen slide not opening fully on rearmost side to seal to body, gap that is about 3/4 inch from wall on the interior bottom, seals at top.

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

Second problem, is the bedroom slide was just retracted and now will not extend, can hear the pump motor run but no movement.

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

1999 Winnebago vcm39y fluids are full

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '99 RV?

Winnebago grand tour Vectra, VCM39Y

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

Verified fluid level, checked for leaks, checked for dirty-loose-broken wires to extend retract solenoids----all appear clean and tight, small leak at a tee to front slide hoses

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

Not that I can think of

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

I tried swapping switches, between the front slide and rear slide....no change. I located the retract and extend solenoids, for bedroom slide, swapped connectors----no change. What would you suggest??
