Triple E having problems with hydraulics

I have a 2005 Triple E, Commander 32 on a workhorse 22 chassis. Bought this unit a year ago. Have had problems with the jacks. One, a selinoid had to be replace. Two, valve had to be replaced on right front jack. Would not extend or retract. Had the valve replaced. On the next trip, would not extend and the front slide would only extend two inches and then would not respond. Had to hand crank it in now being told I have hydraulic valve problem. Any one having similar problems? Am I doing something wrong. On getting to a site, I extend the jacks, then extend the large slide, followed by the electric bedroom slide. Appreciate any thoughts.

Re:stabilizer jacks

My motorhome is older than your obviously. But I do have the hydraulic stabilizer jacks on all four corners. I keep having problems with the springs popping off the jacks. Just like the motor oil I also have canister in the engine
compartment that has to be filled with oil. Unlike your motorhome, mine has no valve, because the jacks have to be operated while the engine is running. I have on occassion let the fluid get low, and air get into the system. Nothing would work and it was a real headache to get it working again.

Welcome the both of you to irv2.
Here are some manuals for the Triple E select the one that is yours with a slide in HWH SYSTEM and there maybe a trouble section to correct the problem.
The fluid tank needs to be full to the center of two lines on the bell shaft vent with all jacks retracted for starters.
If you open a T valve the springs should restore the jack piston in its sleeve.
If it does not than you may have a O ring in jack binding to prevent it.
I just replaced a jack that would extend but not retract , had to use a 6 ton jack to get piston stored in order to replace jack. Sometimes you can use a 2x4 if you have room to get under jack. Cost $ 400.

CIMPLEX, I do not see a system for Fleetwood are you sure you have a HWH system.
You should start a new thread for your problem.

My motorhome obviously does not have slide outs, it's to old. But yes I have hydraulic stabalizer jacks with the tracker style controls by the drivers seat.
My jack are more like the old fashioned system for a backhoe. But they do work.
Comes in handy when I need to change a tire. I can just lift the wheel right of the ground!!!!
