I mention this because the handle/valve might have been bumped accidentally, or vibrated loose.
Sorry (and hope some of you knowledgeable types get a chuckle) but are these what's known as the solenoids for our slides? HWH system with Equalizer controller.

Our main slide creeps out an inch or two while on the road. A 2x4 keeps it inside the cabin for now, but would like the unit to be perfect...

mulligan; Welcome to iRV2.
It's always best to start your own thread, if you problem isn't identical to the original post. More people will see it and you have better chance of meaningful answers.
I have heard of your problem , slide starting on it's own, if memory serves the member had to pull the fuse to stop the erratic activation, until he could get it fixed. Can't remember if there was an issue with the switch , or corrosion on the controller terminals, causing a power jump when the humidity was high. I'll see if I can track down the old post.
