IF the pump is running and the room is not moving and you have good DC battery voltage then I would see if you have a faulty solenoid, could also be a hydraulic cylinder for the room that is the problem.

Most hydraulic systems uses solenoids, the room would have an extend and retract solenoid, the solenoids would be on the manifold for the pump/motor and each solenoid will have 12 volt wires going to it. Have someone hit the extend button and listen for a click from the solenoid, you can feel the solenoid click as well when the switch is pushed, mark the solenoid, next hit the extend button and id that solenoid. Once you have marked the solenoids swap the wiring on them and then go inside and hit extend and the room should retract, hitting retract should make the room extend, if the problem changes then you have a bad solenoid.

IF you have the same issue you might have a bad cylinder for the room. I might consider paying a mobile RV tech one hour of labor to diagnose this for you as well.

I checked the solenoids. There was no power going to either one.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Normally the solenoids would get a signal from some type or relay board or circuit board.

Who is the manufacturer of the slides and leveling?

HWHPOWER GEAR

Which is it HWH or Power Gear?

Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It's HWH
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Somewhere in the RV you have a control box, I would locate that box and check all the fuses inside of it.

Once you find the box it should have an AP number on a sticker, get me that AP number and I can see if there is a service manual, HWH is a bit complex with all the wiring and that box.

Thanks for the help. I found the problem in the bedroom at the switch. There was a broke wire not sending power to the solenoids on the pump.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

AH... That crossed my mind and I am very glad you checked that and it was a simple fix.

Thanks for taking the time to let me know.

I hope you have a great holiday weekend!
