I run mine out for 15 seconds. Run it back in until I hear major clunk. My coach has the electric operator. Don't know when WRV changed from hydraulic. Had an incident on the freeway the prevented slide from complete retraction. Could not find a sensor so drove from Barstow to LA with buzzer going off. Later found there is a magnetic switch on the driver's side of the cowl that is actuated by a steel disc on the fibreglass front panel.

When they started adding more slides they ran out of real estate on the HWH manifold for more valves so they dropped both the hydraulic opening gen slide and engine door. Probably happened around the 2000 model year.
The problem I had with my slide not coming in turned out to be a bad switch. On the hydraulic activated slides the switch actually operates the pump solenoid directly (not through the controller) and eventually the contacts can burn out.

Lubing the alignment pins on the slide near the top from time to time will make it close a little more smoothly. Mine hung up a tad that allowed the buzzer to go off. Unlike Rick I knew I couldn't last a mile with the buzzer!! Lubing the pins fixed it.
