Slide trim removal

I have developed a hydraulic leak at the rear of my dinette slide, the one that lifts up before pulling in. I need to remove the inside cherry trim piece to gain access to the hydraulics. Anybody know how this trim is attached? Velcro would have been a good design choice for future access but WRV often did not think of maintainability.

Never mind. Two screws release the bottom. Looking at the top, looks like you have to take the whole thing off. Forget it.

I think my leak is at the lift cylinder and this looks like a job for the professionals. You can't even see it.

I've often wondered how I too would gain access to the aft end cylinder on my dinette slide. The hoses haven't started leaking yet but I presume it's just a matter of time.

My plan is to extend the slide then remove the whole aft side window, then move the slide about half way in. I should have pretty good access to the cylinder through the window hole. Hopefully, I won't have to find out too soon.

Good luck,

Ron

The window is a good idea. You'll need some good suction cups on the glass from the inside, or a reliable party on the outside so you don't drop the window on the ground, but other than that they are simple to R&R. Just make sure you don't leave any screws in the inside ring or you'll be prying on the frame and it will bend rather than separate from the side wall; run your finger around the frame or use a bright flashlight to spot any "invisible" screws.
