Is it possible to "block off" hydraulic power to one slide out?

Hello all, I have a raptor 3712 2008 model fifth wheel toy hauler. We use this for racing purposes so we need to get by with what we have and not wait around for repairs. Cosmetics are not priority.

Problem... last weekend the front bedroom slide floor we found has literally rotted away. The connection that the slide hydros connect to has become detached, it only moves out. We must manually push it in now.

Is there a way to temporarily block off the hydro supply to the one slide? All 3 slides are on one button, so it is not as easy as avoiding the front slide button

Also, how in the world would i find which line is for which slide

Have got to love these cardboard junk boxes. Previous owner stored unit with slides open, both bedroom and main living room slide got destroyed. We have since gotten most of our money back and had help repairing the main slide.

Missing our old non slide 30ft. aluminum siding toy hauler.

Without seeing the hyd. schematic I can't say for sure but I would think could take the lines off and plug them. As for finding them you will have to look around the bottom of the slide or if you have the schematic you should be able to find the ports or wires for it at the valve.

Thank you guys. I would prefer to do the capping at the pump, as to not have the lines leak under the bed adding more of a mess when i remove for capping.

If it is a single pump you would have to find the flow divider/distribution block and maybe plug/cap it there. It needs to be capped so the fluid has access to the pressure relief valve or it will over pressure. It is a safer bet to do it at the slide motor.

I worked with a lot of hydraulic systems on heavy equipment. I agree with the post above it would be the best to cap at the cylinder. If there are more than 2 lines at the cylinder leave the extras active and just block off the cylinder. My slide out has an equalizer system so both cylinders get the same pressure and the slide out extends and retracts in a straight line. There is probably a similar system on your slides.
There is a possibility there are multiple electric valves in the hyd. control unit and if so, it might be a simple as taking the wires off the valve. I'll see if I can find a schematic for your unit.
Charraral has only an Owner's Manual on line and no parts schematic.

my cedar creek had a knob on the hyd manifold to shut off each slide if you wanted to just operate one, two or all.
at the manifold will be your best go, install valves inline with the room you want o isolate.
