HWH Slide issue...Creeps in

Hi all,
Sorry if this has been covered.
Here goes the story.
Extended my slide and noticed a pool of fluid on the ground. Turned out to be a faulty cylinder, Had it rebuilt and re installed it. Everything is working great other than the slide creeps in about 3 inches. When i installed the cylinder i slid the room in raised the jacks and checked the fluid. As per the website i lowered the jacks, slid the room out 1 ft, retracted, Slid out 2 foot, retracted, Then slid all the way out. I don't know if i have air in the system or what. Any help or advice would be great

Sounds like the solenoid valve to extend the slide needs to be replaced. Chuck at Stuart's Service is a valuable detail source for how to repair. I have purchased replacement solenoid valves and pump assemble in the past from him. He has walked me through trouble shooting steps on the HWH system in the past and I have always be able to do the fix. I am sure he can help,

It sounds to me like air in the cylinder. If you didn't bleed the air out of the cylinder when you put it back in it will creep like that. Sometimes you can get the air out by working it a few times. If not you can loosen the fitting a little and do it. Just don't be under it without jack stands when you do it.

Thanks for all the help,
I wont be able to get to it for a week or so, Is it safe if i make a brace from the slide to the coach out side to keep it from creeping in?
Or is it under too much pressure?
