Slideouts and HWH leveling system malfunction

Good Evening,

My wife and I just completed a 3,600 trip In our 2007 Winnebago Journey 39k. The trip was excellent with no issues. The coach ran great, all systems performed excellent.

However when we got home to Arizona, I parked the RV, completed all checklists and secured the vehicle. Yesterday, I went to pay the RV storage bill and to also put our portable grill back on the bus. As I was doing a walk around, I noticed the Bedroom and Lounge sliders on the drivers side of the coach had extended about 1 inch since I had parked it 3 weeks ago. I know for a fact that thy we closed tightly when I parked it, as it is an essential checklist item. So I went inside, started the coach, and then got an immediate 'Jacks down" warning and noticed that I had partial extension on the rear two jacks. I recycled the slides, and the leveling jacks and all seemed to return to normal. I will check again in a couple of weeks if the same problem occurs again. I have never had this issue on the road or at any other time, until we got it home and parked it. Any Ideas?

Also, My Fidge is working fine, but it does not seem to run in "AC" mode when the we are going down the road. It will run fine on propane, and it will run in AC mode when we are plugged in. Does the Fridge not run in AC mode when rolling down the highway? I was under the impression that it did.

Thank You,
Joe and Teri Roe

I would imagine that you had a small piece of debris in the hydraulic fluid that kept a solenoid valve from sealing. It may never occur again. I would not be concerned with it unless it recurs.
For the reefer to operate on AC while discoed from shore power you have to supply AC from some source. One source would be your generator. Another source would be an inverter. If your coach has an inverter and it is turned on while discoed from shore power then you may find the inverter does not supply the reefer.

Joe,
On my 39K the refrigerator will not run off the inverter but will operate down the road if running the generator.

You need the genny running underway for the fridge.

Most rig reefers will not run on the inverter. Use the Genny if you want to use AC for the cooling mode.

Each slide & each jack has a solenoid, so a piece of debris doesn't explain multiple solenoid problems. Either there is a lot of debris in the HWH manifold waiting to clog multiple solenoid valve orifices (orifii?), or something operated multiple solenoid valves.
A slide creep can also be explained by a leak, but multiple slides seems more systematic than multiple leaks, and 2 jacks thrown in (since they retract w/a leak rather than extend) also seems like something operated the valves.

Shuttle valve is common
