What am I missing?

While I was cleaning my battery compartment on my 2008 Alpine 34FDDs I noticed a cylinder located at the top of the compartment closest to the front of the coach. The cylinder has lines connected and they appear to be hydralic lines but nothing is connected to the cylinder rod. Can anyone tell me what this is for or what I am missing?

Thanks

It's the slideout synchronizing cylinder. Check the HWH website for details on how this works.

From what you describe, I would guess you found the syncronizing cylinder for the slide system. Likely the cylinder for the bedroom slides. It keeps the slide extension cylinders stay equidistant so that the slide goes in and out straight.

I would tell you how it works, but I have no idea. But it does.

John, clever minds think alike, and apparently at the same time!
