2008 Camelot PDQ Hydraulic Slideout Issue

Hi folks. Last three months I've been having an issue with my front curbside slide. There are two Hydraulic Rams and one is "lazy" (my term). The front of the two slides seems to be doing most if not all the work for both in and out. The slide does seat in and out.

Is there something I should check? Talking with one repair facility states it might be one of the "pop off valves" at the Hydraulic Pump. I've inspected the hoses in and out and don't see any fluid leaks.

Im in the Salem, Oregon area and wanted to head south to Q in Dec, but don't know now.

TIA, John

Have you tried holding the switch for an extra 5 or 6 seconds after the slide stops extending? Do the same when retracting the slide.
Apparently doing this helps sync the two hyd cylinders.

with the slide extended, look in the little rectangular slot near the end of the ram (on the side) for hydraulic fluid leaking. If fluid is present then more than likely you may have a bad seal in hydraulic line or a loose fitting.
