Howdy from Austin

I am a newbie with this blog stuff so pardon me if I screw up.
Anyone had hydraulic problems with their self levelers/slides? We were out on our maiden voyage last spring and while pulling in the slides for the first time, the levelers retracted at the same time, almost crushed the truck! Fixed now, was a solenoid failure, but what a close call. Heads up. The folks at Camper Clinic in Buda are great at taking care of our issues. Cud does to Jeff Bosse!

Welcome to the MOC. Except for touch pad failure, never an issue with the levelers

Got back to our Florida place after 3 months, slides would not extend nor jacks, they would retract. Bad reversing solenoid valve.
Also front jacks leaking down. Had solenoid valve on cylinders rebuilt, still had a problem. Aluminum sleeves in both cylinders were bad, have replace entire jack as Lippert does not sell just the sleeves, to a tune of nearly $1600. Now for a remedy for slide creep. Further testing to come.
