HWH hydraulic repair

My coach : 35 ft. Class A, 2003 Rexhall Rexair, with 2 slides. The living room slide was extended, while I did some cleaning, maintenance in the driveway at home. When I went to retract it , no go, I could hear the pump run, but no move slide. Bedroom slide went in fine. Jacks go up OK. So I look at reservoir under the hood, and low and behold, one of the solenoids has only one wire going to it, the other wire is corroded off flush with solenoid. I'm guessing this is the problem. I will be calling HWH in the morning.
My question for the forum is what traps do I fall into replacing the solenoid? Do I need to release hydraulic pressure ? Will there be a flood of fluid ?
The job looks easy-peasy, but there are always traps....
Bob

Are the electrical solenoid and the valve 2 separate parts? If so, no mess at all. If it's a single unit, you'll get a little oil spillage but not excessive pressure.

Hydraulics,

Thanks, ..the electrical solenoid, and hydraulic valve are all one piece. It seems to thread into the reservoir body.
