Hydralic Room Control

We have a 2017 Montana 3661RL with five slide outs. Before I start turning knobs on the Hydralic Control Room, HCR, panel I thought I'd ask a question first. I want to only bring in the reclining chair slide out. We are in close quarters where we are, if I can slide in the slide out I have enough room to was and wax the slide out. The HCR has four knobs labeled DS--DS2--ODS--ODS2. My question is which knob controls which slide out and what direction should I turn the knob. Right now they are in the 12 o'clock position. Any further information on how the HCR operates will be appreciated. Thanks for any input.

I do know that DS is "Door Side" and ODS is "Off Door Side"
Which is #2 I cannot help you with, you might have to try one to find out.
Mine are labeled at the top and are "on" when the knob points up towards the name (see attached photo). Mine are labeled "OFF" on the bottom. Rotating the knob to "OFF" disables that slide.

Im positive it will be trial and error, as Keystone is known for NOT being consitent with their connections and labeling. I would try 1 at a time and make a note of which one it controls.

Im almost certain the knobs should turn clockwise to shut of service to those knobs/slide units. you must turn them until they stop, but DONT force them too tightly.

Please keep this thread updated on findings, as it may and will help others in their issues!

if yours is like our it would be ODS2 if that is the only one you want to move you turn the others off. They are actually valves. So what you want to do is turn them all the way in the off direction.

On ours you have to turn the knobs counter clockwise past the on position to release the pressure then turn them to off.

Everyone wins a prize! The knobs do turn CW to "turn off" the slide out and ODS2 knob did control the recliner slide out. DS knob controls the dinette table slide out, DS2 knob controls the TV/entertainment slide out and ODS knob controls the refrigerator slide out. I got lucky, the nomenclature on each knob aligns to the position of each slide out. Thanks for your input, I appreciate it. Be safe out there!
