What is this valve for? 03 Journey Slide Pump

I've been trying to get my front slide to stay in and not drift out. I have removed the solenoid for the retraction and among the lines coming off of the pum manifold I saw the valve shown in the attachment. I hope the picture uploaded. It appears to be open. I'm working on an 03 Winnebago Journey. Anybody know anything about what this valve is and in what position it should be for the slides to work correctly?

It appears to be a valve that someone has added to the original system. I would think they had the same problem and added this valve so that when retracted, they could close this valve (clockwise) to keep the room from being able to creep out.

Valve

thanks Mike. I'm just going to leave it alone for now hoping the new solenoid will solve the drifting problem.

Journey slide issue

Does your slide make a thumping sound from a slide arm while you ate moving .

slide

I have not heard a thumping sound but I just got it. I've driven it
1,000 miles so far. I'm having s drift out problem w the slide and
I've ordered a new solenoid in the hopes that will solve the problem.
I just don't know what the valve pictured could be for.

Drifting slide

I replaced the solenoid valve on the front slide of my 03 Winnebago Journey believing that would stop it from drifting open 3 to 5 inchs after closed. It didn't solve the problem. I also closed the valve pictured in this thread and it caused the back slide to stop working so I'm believing the valve pictured has nothing to do with the front slide. Is there an air bleeder on the piston pulling the front slide in? If not the solenoid, then what might allow the slide to drift out. It's like there's absolutely no pressure holding it in.

My HWH hydraulic system schematic shows a flow control valve, which I believe is what you have shown in the posted picture. The description also notes that it should not be adjusted, I guess by people who aren't trained? The fact it has no handle may indicate they didn't want it adjusted without extra effort.

Well, it got adjusted. Shux - I always have been a little compulsive. Never the less, it didn't fix my drift problem but thanks for the information.

If the solenoid is not leaking by and you do not have a leaking hose or fitting then the only thing left that can cause the S/O to drift out is a bad piston. The seals are not holding the pressure and the fluid is leaking by internally.

Gopedel: if the valve didn't fix the creeping then check for leaks on the lines and the cylinders. I had a slide that would occasionally creep out about 3 to 5 inches on my 03 Ultimate when it was new. Took it to the dealer for a fix... they claimed they fixed it. Two days later the slide was once again out. I found a loose connection at a hose coupling. Fixed the creeping...but now 7 years later I have a new problem... The pump is on it's last leg. Thank goodness it is easy to replace.
