Slide out won't close

Forum friends, please help me determine why the slideout on my Cobra Sierra 35' travel trailer. It went out but now will not close. It appears to be hydraulic but I cant locate the pump. Battery is charged but I am going to try a different one. Suggestions PLEASE.

You may want to try hooking up your trucks power (plug in) and give it a try. Unless my battries are fully charged, my slides won't move.

First, do know where the pump is located?
Next what is the voltage at the pump motor leads when you energize the slide out?
Is there power to the pump motor?
Can you hear the pump trying to run?

Now that is one of the easier repairs

Suggestion: Next time you slide the slide, use the old mark one audio direction finder (Also Known As ears) to find the pump while it is making noise, easiest way to locate.

Home is where I park it!
