Thanks so much guys.Many of your thoughts and instructions saved me a lot of headache. I waited until I was ready to come home and the slides came in fine.
, and when I got home they went out fine since the jacks were not down.That pretty well tells me I just didn't have enough fluid to get the whole job done. I am in touch with HWH to make sure I do it right.
Thanks again

ODChrist - I believe if you check the manual, it states clearly to put the Jacks down first before you extend the slides, as if the coach is not level, the slides could go out, and stick and you will never get them in because they are pinched in the opening.

So With the slides/jacks in/up, put HWH fluid in the reserviour and then level the coach and extend the slides, to see if it's working properly.

You will need lots of manpower if you get a slide stuck, because of not being level if you even can.

Your problem was mine, several years ago. Solved by two quarts of fluid. Crisis averted. I was so relieved I could have cried..... My caravan buddies thought I was a goner, then a miracle worker. Several told me they "knew I'd take care of it". Now they think I'm a guru or something. Actually I was a bonehead for not checking it sooner.....
