Auto level & slides

Just headed out for a long trip in my four slide 08 Kountry Star DP and experienced one seems like problem and one confirmed problem. When I hit the auto level the air dump was very short and only dropped about 20 psi. This seems light. The jacks however went down properly. Should I be concerned?Secondly the passenger front slide went out fine but the driver front slide wouldn't extended. No sound no nothing. Tried to recycle and the passenger side and driver slides are both no sound no nothing. The one good thing- the slides are in and I can drive down the road. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Things to check. I would see if you have enough voltage in your house batteries if your slides are electric. May need to run generator to build house batteries up to provide voltage required to move the big slides up front. Other option would be to connect to shore power and try again. This may be dumb question but need to make sure parking break engaged and coach is either running or not running depending on how yours is set up. Good luck and as you say, at least your slides are in so you can keep going. Good luck. Welcome to the world of Rving where something may go wrong

assuming this is a hwh system, with the engine running, (hwh is connected to the engine batteries) check all fuses first. (use a test light) there are fuses down by the pump, as well as in the control box. after that, start with a 12v test light again, check the 12v solenoids at the pump. they are mounted on the motor. there will be three solenoids. one is the master, the second is for the jacks, the third is for the rooms. when you turn the system on, there should be 12v on both sides of the master solenoid. and 12v at one side of the other two. (if you have a key operated pad for the rooms, it must also be turned on) when you hit the extend for the jacks, both sides of the solenoid should be hot. when you hit either room extend, there should be power on both sides of that solenoid. if not, check the small stud on that solenoid. there should be 12v there. if not, go up the line checking connections.
if this isnt hwh, you a service manual anyway.
download a service manual for your system. diagnostics are the answer. you cant do good diagnostics without a manual, unless you have lots of experience.
